Stylish and Sustainable: Take a Tour Through our Favorite Eco-friendly Styles

Written by Cindy Marie Jenkins on Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 at 10:34am.

Here at Nook, we have a passion for people, places and properties. This week we bring you exceptional Tastemakers making waves towards a more eco-friendly, sustainable world. They may work inside or outside of your home, or even inside film studios, but the work they do affects everyone on our planet equally. Unless you're one of those people who can afford an escape pod to the moon station that Elon Musk is building. Then I guess we'll just meet up when you need moon minions?

  • John Lyons brings a Western Ireland aesthetic to The Woven Garden, turning simple shapes into art and all plants into beauty. His garden designs and maintenance bring fantastical life across Los Angeles.

  • The Shift Group in the Bay Area believes that strong design can cause a great shift in not only our standards of living but also impact on the earth. One of the co-founders, Danielle Wyss, has a Net Zero “Passive House” in her portfolio, working towards the most sustainable residence possible.

  • Green Building Architects isn't just a pioneer in green building techniques, but also leads it's field in reducing construction wastes, all while keeping the cost equitable to or lower than normal.

  • When I think of modular, the Marmol Radziner prefabricated homes aren't exactly what comes to mind. With homes that fit onto narrow lots in Venice and glamorous areas of the Hollywood Hills, however, these eco-friendly constructions will soon represent the future of global style.

  • Good Planet Hollywood is attempting the impossible in the most disposable of industries: TV and film. Their mission acknowledges that it will take “a paradigm shift” to move Hollywood toward “sustainable production and event practices as well as inspire conscious consumer behavior by integrating sustainable, healthy, and ethical products and brands in major movies and television shows.” But if Good Planet can make the Great White Way a little more green, surely we can take larger strides through our architectural styles and construction?
