The cedar skin not only creates a certain fluidity that connects the home with the surrounding landscape, but it also allows the building to breathe without allowing in too much heat. And a circular skylight on the first floor permits natural lighting that in turn obviates the need for daytime electricity use. Although not over the top in terms of its design, this energy efficient home exudes a soothing ambience.
