Small Solar-Powered House in Sonoma

Cooper Joseph Studio designed this three-level, 850-square-foot home that helps prove you don’t need to live in a sprawling, energy-guzzling house to be comfortable.

A scientist couple purchased a 25-acre parcel and worked with the architectural firm to design their dream home. The end design and related land use reflect the couple’s desire to save energy and to be more involved with the locavore movement.

The house sits atop a hill overlooking their olive orchard, and lavender plants nearby provide food for the bees kept by the couple.
