Scientist’s Solar-Powered Home

Do you like interesting design and sustainable building practices? Hey, me too! Let’s be friends.

About the residence seen below, Inhabitat’s Bridgette Meinhold writes:
Inspired by the relationship between moving water and canyons, the Berkeley Courtyard House by WA Design is in and of itself a canyon-like formation. Three wings are oriented to create two different breezeways that encourage natural ventilation while providing view of the East Bay below. Native vegetation surrounding the house is enhanced by water features and courtyards that encourage interaction with the outdoors. The stunning zinc-clad home features overhanging roofs, large windows, and an expansive rooftop solar system that provides energy for the house and heats the pools.
