The GreenWorks competition called for designs that incorporated affordability and green building technologies, complied with historic preservation regulations, and reflected the values of the surrounding neighborhood. Furthermore, entrants were required to provide a cost estimate that demonstrated the financial feasibility of their designs including per square foot building cost and a cost/benefit analysis of energy savings. The design criteria also stipulated that the entries adhere to the City’s Santa Fe Homes Program that requires 30% of the homes built are affordably-priced (max. of $155,000 in this case). Furthermore, the designs must comply with the development regulations pertaining to the site, regarding setbacks, percentage of lot coverage, and open space.
This booklet recognizes the designs that best met the overall criteria.
