    New Residence


    LOCATION: Palo Alto, CA
    AREA: 3745 SQ-FT
    COMPLETED: November 2008

    This house demonstrates how a careful design can meet and exceed green goals by conditioning and lighting passively - without photovoltaic and solar hot water systems. The passive strategy relies on engineered architectural elements such as exposed concrete floors, insulated conditioning, elongated eves, a tall central interior space, and a floor heating system to mitigate the extremes of the daily and seasonal temperature swings.
