Our Green Inspiration Home was presented as the Mobile Bay Magazine's 2021 Inspiration Home and celebrates a healthy coastal lifestyle and a healthy environment, with beauty and style.

From a sustainable home design to landscaping that’s both elegant and eco-friendly, Fairhope’s first ‘Green’ Inspiration Home showcases a variety of features that highlight the exciting ways we can build - and live - smarter and more sustainably in South Alabama.

As designer and architect on the project, WATERSHED was proud to partner with some amazing local professionals to create a durable and resilient home that allows its occupants to live luxuriously next to nature while reducing their environmental footprint.
