Gallery: Gorgeous Hybrid Home Keeps its Cool With Honeycomb Clay Walls ...

 
The green roof provides continuity with the garden

“The energetic efficiency of the proposal and its landscape integration are two major considerations for the constructive solution of the project,” F451 Arquitectura told Dezeen. Therefore, merging the double story home and studio, which exist on two different levels, was accomplished in such a way as to ensure that every space enjoys double orientation and maximum daylighting and natural ventilation.

Clerestory windows cut out of the irregular-shaped roof not only create an aura of intrigue, but also help to ensure that the entire home is well lit; the green roof above the guest room has a dual purpose as well – to provide yet more insulation and to establish continuity with the garden. The interior is comprised of an open floor plan and framed views of the verdant outdoors.
