Designed as a retreat, the house offers the essentials of California living, big indoor/outdoor connections, a big deck and an easy flowing great room. Located on a slight rise, with the main doors facing south, this 1000 sq. ft. house has a profound feeling of "prospect and refuge," a concept articulated by Frank Lloyd Wright to describe one of the archetypal elements of a good home.
The feeling is further enhanced by a roof with a deep eave that slopes up to the south, a solid feeling concrete floor, and small windows to the north, east and west. The orientation and design of this well insulated house also works well for energy performance. Despite occasional 100 degree days in the summer, the air conditioner is rarely used. In the winter, most of the heat is provided by the sun. The house scores a 9.9 out of 10 on EPA/DOE's National Energy Star Home Energy Yardstick.
