A beautiful, sustainable house was designed and built by Francois Perrin from Air Architecture, an architectural firm from Los Angeles. This eco construction is located on one of the last buildable site on Hollywood Hills, sunken to the earth. Supported by its eco construction and design, this house may provide high energy efficiency.

This sustainable architecture building is a four-story terraced house. The location is a very steep land  but mostly constituted of Bedrock. The house sinks into the steep, to help maintaining the temperature, by utilizing the earth’s characteristic.

Natural ventilation and the orientation of the sustainable home were considered to provide fit temperature of the house and the view. The orientation was set to the north and south (with the hill to the north and the west). By this, the western hill slope will provide shading for the house in the harsh sunlight afternoon. The natural ventilation may provide good air circulation, so it does not need any air conditioners.

This eco friendly construction was built with concrete structure. This material can help the house to store the heat while needed. Water heating is provided by sun heating system (utilizing sun as an alternative energy), by circulation the water through metal sunscreens. This hot water is then redirected to the radiant floor heating system.
