Urban Eden: A Green Dream Home in Boulder, Colorado

A pair of architects in Boulder pull off the ultimate collaboration—their own family's dream home—an open, airy abode made of recycled polystyrene and cement blocks that takes full advantage of an idyllic urban setting.

With their home at the edge of the Boulder community gardens, the Barretts can enjoy both the neighborhood and the surrounding environment, including a spectacular view of the foothills.
