Midori (Japanese, “Green”) embodies the spirit of affordable, efficient, and modern. This unique project is designed and built by Fassebldgs. with nods to strong local talent, land planner Howard Capps and B&O Design Studio architects. Six homes in an existing urban setting set a new bar for energy efficiency and low maintenance with average costs 70 percent lower than comparable homes. Cutting edge strategies keep building costs moderate but exceed all performance goals. 

​Certifications of performance standards include N.C. HealthyBuilt, Duke Energy HERO code, LEED, and the U.S. EPA and Department of Energy's Energy Star Program.
