"A simple metal volume perched high on a bluff offers targeted views of the lake below.Predominantly oriented to the south, the houses galvanized metal exterior is punctuated by storefront windows that frame vignette views to the south, east and west. Inside, a partition wall divides the elongated rectangular interior and supports the lofts structure, which appears to float above the glazed joist spaces.

Thick fir decking, sitting atop steel wide flange joists, creates both a ceiling for the private area below and the floor for the loft above. Fir boards wrap three sides of the interior as a super sized wainscoting unifying the stairway, kitchenette and powder room functions.

Thirteen-foot tall double doors echo the oversized wainscoting effect by further expanding the sense of scale and height in the small space.

The doors open to capture the southern view, prevailing breezes, and sounds and scents of nature creating seamless indoor-outdoor connections when desired.

Although it is on the grid, its 14 photovoltaic panels collect enough energy to power its intermittent use. Rainwater collected from the roof provides all household water while the xeriscaped landscape requires no irrigation."

LM Guest House by Desai Chia Architecture:

"Located on a rolling farm property in upstate New York, the LM Guest House celebrates the beauty of the surrounding landscape sweeping views through an all-glass facade magnify the spacious, open feel of the living areas.The home employs several sustainable design strategies including geothermal heating and cooling, radiant floors, motorized solar shading, photovoltaic panels, and rainwater harvesting.

The open living and sleeping areas flow around a compact slatted wood core that disguises the mechanical, storage, and bathing spaces. Two sleeping couchettes with built-in bunk beds provide efficient accommodations for additional weekend guests. Natural white oak wood detailing provides warmth and texture throughout the home.

The high-performance glass facade was pre-fabricated off site, shipped in one container, and erected in two days. An innovative steel frame structure allows the roof to cantilever dramatically over the open living areas and bedroom."

J2 Residence by assemblageSTUDIO:

“The project is located in the master planned development of Summerlin, along the western edge of Las Vegas at the base of Red Rock. The community’s design requirements call for “design individuality, horizontally and sensitivity to the desert hillside environment.” J2 recognizes the owners and developers combined appreciation of the desert environment through our choice of materials, environmental orientations, daylighting, landscaping and use of renewable energy sources.
sustainable contemporary home design
Our client desired a home that engaged the outdoors within their living spaces. Expanded views into the adjacent golf course and foothills provide a connection between indoors and out. Each public space; great room, dining room, library, and casita is provided a view into the distant landscape as well as intimacy with the courtyard and pool. The basement bar and game room area connects to the outside through a courtyard which admits daylight into the space.
modern pool garden lounge
The home provides a large percent of its own power consumption through Kyocera Multicrystal Photovoltaic Modules placed on the wing canopy. The canopy has been designed to eliminate direct sunlight from entering into the residence during the hottest seasons while allowing maximum visibility to the south. Rammed earth construction creates a thermal mass to mitigate the extreme fluctuations in day and nighttime temperatures.”
