This sustainable architecture building is Coastlands House, designed by Carver + Schicketanz for a retired couple in Big Sur, Califonia. This gorgeous, modern house is powered by sustainable energy source to provide low carbon footprint and high energy efficiency.
The eco construction was built on an enviable sloping site, lying from north to south, facing the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The house is dominated with steel and glass elements, creating modern look, and provides maximal access for cross ventilation, natural daylighting, and wonderful view. Contrast from this, a massive stone base connect the structure to the uphill slope.
The use of sustainable materials was also done. Natural materials were used, also the reclaimed materials, especially for the interior.To provide good sustainability, sustainable technology was applied, especially by using sustainable energy of 4.4 kW photovoltaic arrays to power 90% of the house.
Outdoor spaces are available to provide good connection to the nature. This house has good energy footprint and become a good example of sustainable design.
