Hillside Home

Nestled into the hillside, this home was designed to capture the views of the valley and mountain silhouette.


Designed for a retired couple with an active lifestyle and high sustainability goals, this home is designed for both family gatherings and quiet contemplation. Thoughtful  building siting maximizes solar access, views, and natural daylighting throughout the year.  Exposed structural beams and large roof overhangs connect indoor spaces to the outdoors, providing not only a visual connection, but also an extension of living spaces to outdoor rooms.

SIP roof panels and double-wall framing result in a high-preforming building envelope that reduces heating/cooling demands. Garage orientation maximizes solar access for an extensive solar array designed to supply the home with all its power needs.  Designed around principles of aging-in-place with an at-grade entry, gracious circulation, widened doorways and single level living, this three-bedroom home has a place for all to enjoy.
