This contemporary home blends wood, glass, travertine and an off-white tone in giving an aesthetic that is simple and yet eye catching. It's timelessness lies completely in the simplicity of the design. Yet the simplicity belies the fact that
the devil here lies in the details.
The house's contemporary status is not only highlighted in the aesthetics but also in the efficiency of it's design. Rain water harvesting, optimal solar orientation, , cross ventilation, solar power back-up, low-emission glazing and great insulation are some of the measures taken to ensure that this home uses a minimal amount of power in maintaining a comfortable space inside.
This home, along with all our other designs are custom designed to meet the needs of each individual client (family) as well as the unique requirements and opportunities (views, solar orientation, etc) of each site. No two clients are the same, therefor, no two projects will ever meet the same criteria.
