In a New Orleans complex of new, affordable housing, the Domino team creates a home that's sustainable in every way—healthy materials, easy maintenance, and cozy to live in.

The Greenest Way to Go: Salvage

One of the best things you can do is to repurpose stuff that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Our team scoured the city's numerous antiques shops, as well as flea markets and yard sales, to turn up objects that would give the house local flavor. We found everything from furniture to art—thereby putting money directly into the hands of area businesses. In the grand scheme of things, reusing a plastic chair is better than buying a new one made of sustainable wood!
