First Net-Zero Residence From Aro Homes Is Listed At $4.2 Million

Aro Homes, an early-stage company focused on designing and building carbon-negative, sustainably built, single-family homes, announced its first completed residence designed by Olson Kundig, the Seattle-based global design practice, has been listed for sale at $4.2 million in Mountain View, California.

The 3,000-square-foot modular home includes four bedrooms and an office space. Aro Homes said its residential properties are engineered to use 67% less energy than the American Institute of Architects 2030 Challenge Baseline for energy performance. By leveraging passive design approaches, the house is oriented to maximize sunlight for the roof-mounted photovoltaic solar array, which will produce more electricity than the house uses in a year. Aro Homes also offers an option for gray water reclamation and reuse, which further reduces water use by as much as 45% as compared to a standard home.

While the initial Aro Homes model is designed for Califorina’s Bay Area, the company plans to expand its offering to other markets.

“Olson Kundig was the ideal collaborator for a single-family home that is equally beautiful and good for the world and the environment,” said Carl Gish, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Aro Homes. “They understand the critical importance of maximizing resource efficiency to create homes that are sustainable and remarkable to live in. Home construction has been slow to evolve and meet the challenges of climate change — together, we are transforming that paradigm.”
