Are you ready to Experience the Innovation?
We’re just a few weeks away from opening the doors to the most ambitious eco-friendly home project in our company’s long history.
PureBlue is a new concept home built to test the limits of innovation, efficiency and design, to explore the latest technologies and find out how they fit with the way homeowners want to live today, tomorrow and far beyond. The lessons we learn will help us build better, healthier, more energy-efficient homes.

“We set out to build a Net Zero home, but we knew it had to be more than that,” said Robert C. Hubbell, president of Brookfield’s Washington division. “In addition to being extraordinarily energy efficient, it had to be beautiful and functional. The PureBlue Home is all of those things. We challenged our team to build something truly innovative, and they did not disappoint.”
The list of next-generation features included in The PureBlue Home is long and detailed. The features are focused on improving energy efficiency, making life easier and healthier for residents, and building upon Brookfield’s reputation for smart, stylish design. Among the favorites:
Supreme Energy Efficiency
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) replace stud-framed walls, creating a stronger, tighter seal to bring greater efficiency and savings.
The hybrid hot water heater provides outstanding performance while requiring significantly less energy.
A high-efficiency HVAC system ensures clean, healthy air is always circulating.
Harnessing Nature’s Resources
Solar panels on the roof harness the sun’s energy and minimize consumption.
The grey water system minimizes flooding, erosion and runoff, while reducing water usage.
Sustainable and Beautiful
The stunning kitchen bar top has been repurposed from a black walnut tree removed during development and fashioned by furniture artist Vicco Von Voss.
Eco Veneer bamboo cabinets provide a sleek, beautiful look created with strong, sustainable materials.
Landscaping is highlighted by native, low-water plants that are easily maintained with a drip irrigation system.
“The PureBlue Home really is a glimpse into the future of homebuilding, not just for Brookfield but for the entire industry,” Hubbell said. “We’re excited to see this home coming to life and looking forward to all the ways we can use lessons learned from this project to build the very best homes we can for all of our homeowners.”
