Hiles Says Architecture Trends Reaching Outside Home

Hiles Says Architecture Trends Reaching Outside Home

Architectural trends are reaching outside the home, as residents crave designs that boast both low maintenance and high style. Marcus Hiles notes that the demand for open-air spaces that are sustainable and reduce costs is on the rise,and eco-friendly, conservation-minded choices such as rainwater and graywater harvesting along with permeable pavement are leading the charge. Rainwater harvesting redirects moisture from the air for storage in a well via a rooftop collection system, then the water is treated and repurposed on-site. A graywater system takes previously used domestic wastewater and recycles it for rest rooms and non-drinking purposes, cutting the demand for fresh water and lowering the amount of sterilization needed. Permeable pavement is another seemingly novel idea for environmentally minded construction, and the process actually originated thousands of years ago when people first made roads by putting stones in beds over the ground. The system allows rain to pass through small openings between four layers of filtration (paving material, gravel, fabric, and sand) and then be absorbed by the earth below. This lowers runoff and pollution, controls the flow of storm water to gutters and drains, replenishes local groundwater supplies and makes for a skid resistant surface for walkways, patios and driveways. Many attractive patterns incorporate features like crushed stone, brick, and recycled concrete.

Environmental Responsibility to Housing Developments Promoted by Marcus Hiles, Western Rim Property services Founder and CEO

Hiles’ environmental pledge stretches up far beyond the doors of the residences he builds. His team’s bold tree-planting dynamism increase the volume of a community’s tree canopy to top pre-development levels. “Each of the 3,000 trees we planted last year sequesters over 45 pounds of carbon dioxide and pollutants while releasing oxygen,” he states. At the same time, Hiles works to conserve existing arboreal treasures, such as the hundreds of 100-year-old oak trees that thrive in a developed park next to one Western Rim site. Marcus Hiles sees environmental responsibility as a gain for both community members and the planet. “Our bold goal is to lessen carbon emissions by more than 500,000 metric tons over the next decade,” he declares. “In the process, we’ll deliver energy savings to our residents and create sustainable, livable communities.”
