Perhaps one of the biggest developments in residential architecture over the last 10 years is a greater awareness of and sensitivity to the environment. Following this interest is a greater supply of sustainable flooring choices (including rapidly renewable bamboo and cork), the re-emergence of linoleum, and the salvaging of wood from old structures. “[Salvaged lumber] is superb, tightly grained wood with an aesthetically pleasing appearance,” says Gail Lindsey, FAIA, Design Harmony, Wake Forest, N.C.
