AE Interest: The Sweetwater Spectrum is a community of supportive housing for adults with autism. It is designed to LEED-NC 2009 Gold Level. This low-carbon community is designed to reduce sensory stimulation to connect to the natural world, and to create safe, comfortable and predictable domestic environments. The buildings are oriented to maximize solar benefit and to create a variety of outdoor spaces for activities and quiet retreat. Also, the high performance envelope, building-integrated photovoltaic and solar thermal panels reduce energy consumption by 88% from baseline.[a]
