Redux: Designs That Reuse, Recycle, and Reveal

Jennifer Roberts, the writer and green design expert that brougt us Good Green Homes recently released her newest book, Redux. Green building, with its emphasis on health, energy efficiency and environmental protection, has never been more relevant than it is today. Redux unveils a particularly compelling side of eco-friendly home design: the use of salvaged and recycled materials to create distinctive homes. Redux showcases homes that span the spectrum of reuse, from places where the recycling story is behind the walls to homes that wear their salvage on their sleeves. Each chapter tells the story of a beautifully crafted home and the people who created it. A number of featured projects are eco-sensitive renovations of older houses, while others are new construction or green adaptations of structures not originally intended as homes. Redux is now available from booksellers nationwide and from Redux: Designs That Reuse, Recycle, and Reveal (Gibbs Smith, Publisher, $29.95, ISBN 1586857010).
