SPECIAL INFORMATION

The Garden Atriums is a lush, garden community with organic gardens, an aquaculture pond, fruit trees and park areas. The community is characterized by clustered homes with common open areas. The homes incorporate a unique blend of materials into an enduring, self-sustaining whole, which fit comfortably with other houses in the neighborhood.

The Garden Atrium home includes an architecturally designed large skylight at the center of the home. This energy efficient structure is not only visually impressive, but facilitates passive heating, natural ventilation and lighting, and indoor atrium spaces all of which support a healthy indoor environment.
