The house is located next to a preserve dominated by constant coastal winds. In order to take advantage of the winds and protect the interior from excessive sunlight, the architects oriented the face of the house toward the street, the afternoon sun, and the prevailing wind. The west and east facades feature operable windows with small adjustable openings o the windward west side and expansive openings on the leeward east side. These differences in the size of the openings facilitates natural ventilation. Related:...
