Sol is the first development in the City of Austin to utilize a sub-grade bio-filtration system to handle the water quality requirements mandated by the city. Run-off from impervious surfaces (streets, sidewalks, driveways, etc.) is directed through a sedimentation pond and into a series of chambers located under the community park. From there it percolates through a layer of gravel and sand, and ultimately goes back into the aquifer.
All landscaping planned for Sol is drought resistant, low-impact vegetation. The result is that little or no water is needed for irrigation aside from typical natural rainfall. Each home is also rainwater collection ready.
SOLD OUTNews about Sol V2.0 coming shortly.

Sol balances the financial and environmental impact of sustainable development with its political merits and implications.
“As architects, we have a responsibility to take a longer term view of development and conceptualize more holistic, sustainable models.“
