Rebuilt from an old ranch in 1954, in Orinda, in the United States, this house located at the foot of a hill, near a seasonal stream, has been renovated with the utmost commitment to nature for eco-sustainability and low energy impact .
The only surviving part of the house is the chimney, wrapped in cement and used as a structural support (pillar).
Leaving the oak that has always grown up next to the house, giving a vision of the connected nature next to those who live there.
Natural light for a unique environment
The house is naturally lit, from the immense windows that surround the whole house.
These windows with high insulation, thermal, are developed in height, in all the floors of the house, surrounding the house, with light.
The screen that surrounds the house, along all the external corridors composed of steel carten in leather, without any maintenance, serves to shelter from the sun in the hot season.
Ecological lifestyle for a home made with natural materials
The real protagonist present throughout the house is the solid wood parquet found everywhere in every corner of the house, even the ceiling is covered in wood, while the lights are set in the ceiling imitating natural light with minimal design.
