This sustainable home building is located on a hill. The topography of the location provide a wonderful view of he gorgeous Sierra Madre mountains and the national park. The building is formed by stacks of cantilevered volumes, the  dark volumes and the white volumes. The construction creates good outdoor-indoor interaction, and unique facade. With this construction, the architect wants to provide light sense of the building.

Sustainable features were provided in order to provide energy efficient building. Green roofing are provided on the second floor, helps to catch the rainwater which will be processed at the grey water treatment system. Double walls, insulated by polyisocianurate and low-E double windows were expected to provide protection from mountain wind. For the heating source, alternative energy provided by solar panels is used to heat water for the pool and for the house’s need. It is supported by hydronic heating system.
