The October issue of Architectural Digest features an exclusive peek inside Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s gorgeous, eco-conscious estate. This sprawling, green Los Angeles oasis seems to be a perfect retreat away from all the bright lights and attention that’s always following the celebrity power couple.
The couple’s goal in creating their dream property focused on their desire to not only live comfortably but also to live responsibly. Gisele, who is a global ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme, stressed the importance of sustainable living, design and the conservation of natural resources throughout the conception of the project: “From the beginning we asked everyone involved in the design and construction, ‘How can we make it as sustainable as possible?’”
The construction of the home involved as many recycled components as possible with the use of environmentally friendly construction materials and design features. In addition to an array of photovoltaic solar panels to meet all the property’s energy needs, the couple’s home features water and energy systems that actually improves the family’s total impact on the land.
