Architect Jason McLennan is one of the most prolific and well-known figures in the green-design scene. He launched the world’s most rigorous green certification program, called the Living Building Challenge, in 2006; runs a Seattle-based sustainable design firm; and is founder of the nonprofit International Living Future Institute. He has also received the highest honor related to socially responsible design and was even hired by Leonardo DiCaprio to design Blackadore Caye, the actor’s soon-to-open 68 villa eco-resort on an island off the coast of Belize. So, when it came time for McLennan to design and build his own family compound a short ferry ride away from Seattle, on Bainbridge Island, he naturally went all out.
