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 [6] 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 [7] exudes a soothing ambience.
