Zeljo Studio
Arlington, VA 

Down to Earth designed this 500 SF strawbale studio apartment in Arlington, Virginia.  It was built on an existing pad foundation.  Walls are strawbale infill around a timber frame structure.  Exterior has wood siding, while interior uses clay plaster dug from the site.  Most of the interior materials were salvage or repurposed, including the windows, flooring, fixtures, and cabinets.  The dormers have a planted roof to help absorb rainwater and keep the loft cool.
