Will Pierce Brosnan's New High-Tech Home Be Eco-Friendly?
The 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?
