Sustainable House By The Pond
Situated in a suburban area, south of San Francisco, this particular dream home comes from Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects and brings two strong attributes to the table: design and sustainability. The house was built considering the future owner’s requests: he wanted place that “maximizes the drama of the pond and takes advantage of the privacy of the site”. As a result, the architects decided to brake the main building into four separate smaller ones, all provided with large glass sliding doors that open up to face the garden and pond. The sustainability part is provided by solar panels, green building materials and special cool-off systems, without using air conditioner machines.
