Rocky Mountain Institute is located in the heart of the Old Snowmass Valley, a rural area 16 miles west of Aspen, Colorado. The original RMI building has three functions: a house for Amory and Hunter Lovins and their guests; a year-round growing space for fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fish; and a research center whose use is donated as the headquarters of RMI, a nonprofit resource policy center. It was designed by Steve Conger, AIA of the Aspen Design Group and constructed by Amory, Hunter, 12 professional builders and artisans, and over 100 volunteers. Energy and resource-efficient technologies are integrated with other elements such as natural lighting, good indoor air quality, plants, natural ventilation, and soothing sounds from a waterfall to produce a building that not only makes economic and environmental sense, but also makes people feel good. #Airtightness #Daylighting #department_of_eneregy #doe #Durability #Efficient_lighting #energy_efficient #Glazing #HVAC #Indigenous_vegetation #Insulation_levels #Local_materials #Massing_and_orientation #Noise_control #Onsite_renewable_electricity #Passive_solar
