MODERN LIVING by ecofabulous featuring pieceHomes: Green Showhouse at Dwell | ecofabulous

MODERN LIVING by ecofabulous has been the premiere experience at Dwell on Design for the last two years. Last year’s showhouse saw approximately 18,000 visitors at the three-day conference and received media spots in over 30 outlets including NBC LA, E! Entertainment, Treehugger, Apartment Therapy, and Triple Pundit. Additionally, a 5-part web documentary series was published on the project in collaboration with eHow Home spotlighting the innovative companies and products in the house.

Due to overwhelming response, ecofabulous has again been asked to showcase the exhibit in 2011. This year, founder Zem Joaquin has teamed up with leading architect Jonathan Davis of pieceHomes, and sustainable prefab builder, OneBuild, to create a modern dweller’s 550 sq. ft. eco-friendly dream home. This year’s MODERN LIVING Showhouse by ecofabulous, featuring pieceHomes will again be auctioned via eBay Giving Works with proceeds benefitting Global Green USA.

Stay tuned as we continue to update our list of partners and house features, as well as share the latest renderings, construction photos, and more! And in the meantime, take a peek at the video below of last year’s house to get an idea of what’s in store:
