Armstrong Cabinets' eco-friendly cabinet line, Origins, is featured in LivingHomes' new C6 prefab home, designed through a partnership with Make It Right, a nonprofit co-founded by actor Brad Pitt and architect William McDonough aiding New Orleans' 9th Ward, which was devastated during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The Origins cabinet line is made with PureBond, a urea formaldehyde-free, soy-based adhesive, and hardwood plywood derived responsibly from managed forests and enhanced with a proprietary resin for strong bonding and water resistance.
“It has always been our most important goal to develop an affordable LivingHome, and Armstrong Cabinets is an important component," said LivingHomes CEO Steve Glenn. "We believe this is the first production home to feature Cradle-to-Cradle inspired materials and a LEED Platinum level environmental program. It’s also the easiest and fastest LivingHome to build.”
The Home Depot sponsored two LivingHomes C6 prefabs — one at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, Feb. 18-25, and the other one was displayed during Modernism Week, Feb. 17-26 in Palm Springs, CA. Home Depot, which recently launched, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, leed.homedepot.com featuring LEED products available at its stores, also showcased the LEED Platinum homes during TED2012, a conference bringing together some of the best ideas in the areas of technology, entertainment and design.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the new C6 homes will benefit Make It Right and its continuing efforts to be build 150 Cradle-to-Cradle inspired LEED Platinum homes in New Orleans.
