A primer for all families interested in greening up, The Kennedy Green House shows intimate details on how the Richardson Kennedys transformed a "sick " home into a standard-setter in eco-efficient design, decoration, and practice. The large-format book documents the "greening" process with a practical, accessible, how-to approach, drawing on the knowledge of amazing contributors from the forefront of green design and architecture.
Following the renovation of the Kennedy family home from conception to construction and the final move in, The Kennedy Green House tells the story of the family's journey to health, wellness, and a better lifestyle. In doing so, it presents simple, easy, and inviting options for consumers from any background who are interested in bringing the environmental movement home. Expert team advisors, including Bob Vila, William McDonough, Allan Shope, Allen Hershkowitz, Al Franken, Lew French, George Bridge, and more add their specialized input on the project's undertaking and outcomes, providing unique advice to homeowners.
Architectural designer Mary Richardson Kennedy has worked with the firm of Diana Kellogg, the prestigious Parrish Hadley Associates, and leading designer Annabelle Selldorf. Mother of six and married to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Richardson embraced this project to encourage green deconstruction, construction, and sustainability.
