pierce brosnan, eco-friendly, high-techThe news is abuzz today over leaked details of Pierce Brosnan’s new electronically tricked-out mansion soon to be built in Malibu, CA. Some of the technology being disclosed is a high-definition home theater system, a security system with pressure sensors in the flooring and infrared lights, blinds that rise at the touch of a button to reveal ocean views, wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, and flatscreen televisions built into the wall of most rooms.

The source did not disclose if the home would be eco-friendly — but we have a pretty good hunch it may be tricked out in that area as well. The UK Guardian seems to think so too with this bit: “The house should also be green – Brosnan will use eco-friendly building products and install solar panels to provide electricity.” Obviously, they’re only guessing — but we like those additions for a start. Might we also recommend:

Pervious Concrete for easy drainage, a green roof, Maglev vertical-axis turbine, native plants and permaculture lanscaping, low-flow, dual-flush toilets, LED lighting, occupancy sensors that reduce lighting and heat when people leave a room, and a passive solar design.

Since Pierce is one of our more “green” celebrities, we hope he invests just as much in making his home eco-friendly as he does in trying to impress Q. What would you recommend?

    I think it is fantastic that someone like Mr. Brosnan cares for our environment enough to build his own house with the best eco-knowledge available. It would be fantastic to see this knowledge available for schools to put into some type of program to educate the next generation. It is the children today that will make the difference for tomorrow.
