Vastu Home Wins First LEED™ Platinum Certification in Iowa
On Monday, June 21, Iowa’s first LEED™ Platinum-certified home was awarded a certification plaque by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
Located at 33 Pecan Street in Cypress Villages, Robert Smistik's new Vastu home was over a year in the making. Constructed entirely by local contractors, the two bedroom home had to meet a rigorous checklist of requirements to attain LEED™ Platinum certification.
The sustainable development of Cypress Villages has the goal of having all of their homes built according to the principles of Maharishi Vastu architecture and LEED™ Platinum certificated.

Services include the following options:
1) Smaller features incorporating Vedic proportions and measurements to fit into your existing Vastu garden.
2) Design of the layout of your garden within the desired area.

Harvard Case Study on Vastu
Jeffrey Abramson was interviewed by Multi-Housing News Online about the value of Vedic architecture.
The Harvard Business School/Harvard University Graduate School of Design recently presented a case study: “Design Creates Fortune: 2000 Tower Oaks Boulevard,” on the 200,000 square foot LEED Platinum and Fortune Creating Architectural/Vedic-designed office building co-developed by The Tower Companies and Lerner Enterprises of Rockville, Md.
The presenters challenged students to consider the fact that human capital costs were higher than energy costs, and, perhaps it made more business sense to focus on improving the efficiency and productivity of the employees by employing ideas like Vedic Architecture.
