Single Family Residence 1
5,500 Square Feet
This private residence combines mid-century modern design style with craftsman elements and materials to achieve expansive open planning with a comfortable livable feel. Wood beams and columns, stone, stucco, and ironwork are used to frame expansive windows to bring the natural beauty of the site indoors. Large overhangs were used to shelter the building interior from the sun and weather. The building orientation allowed for uninterrupted views of the natural surroundings and passive solar design. Other energy saving technologies were used such as sprayed in urethane foam insulation and high efficiency HVAC systems. The operating costs for the home have been exceptionally low.
