Ashworth Cottages

The Ashworth Cottages are 20 residential cottages in the Green Lake neighborhood ranging in size from 1,500 – 1,800 square feet. This was only the 7th residential development to be awarded LEED® Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council in the country, and the first in Washington State. These craftsman-style cottages are built around a central courtyard in a shared park-like setting. Brick, tiles and truss timbers from the previous structure were recycled in the construction of the cottages, and formaldehyde-free millwork was used. The homes’ ventilation systems are linked to on-demand hot water systems to provide heat and air conditioning, filtering 95% of airborne particles, and rainwater is captured in a 23,000-gallon cistern for property irrigation. The project was completed in 2008.
