Faultless Design and Energy Efficiency: Tiburon Bay House

sustainable modern residence Freshome05 Faultless Design and Energy Efficiency: Tiburon Bay House
It is hard to find something wrong with this captivating looking modern residence. Tiburon Bay House was designed by Butler Armsden Architects and is cleverly integrated in a rich natural environment When designing this residence, the architects were tasked to create an energy sustainable home. As a result, ā€œthe floor plan of the house is centralized around a vertical stair to minimize circulation for people and utilities. The rooms are then allowed to spiral away from this core to take advantage of the views and the garden. An exterior bridge that serves as an outdoor living space also connects the garden to the house and solves the difficult problem of entering a house on a fairly steep uphill site. All of the materials used in the project are recycled or sustainable and in some cases, like the retaining walls, were salvaged from the foundations of the original house. Electricity and hot water are solar powered, and there is even a complex water reclamation system that is technologically ahead of the local building codesā€œ. We were pleasantly surprised by the interior design of this place, characterized by a contemporary style, mixed with good taste. How would you characterize this modern crib?
