Heron Hall

December 14, 2021

Heron Hall is the home of Jason F. McLennan and his family. As a Petal-certified LBC project (Water, Place, Health, Happiness), it embodies the philosophy of sustainable architecture through high performance systems and elegant design. It is the fourth residence in the world to achieve the Water Petal of the Living Building Challenge, and collects, stores, treats and reutilises rainwater on-site in a 15,000-gallon cistern for 100 per cent of its water needs.
