A solar paneled roof, daylighting and old-fashioned preservation play a role in the sustainable architecture of the building. The owners also sprung for ultra-efficient LEDs for ambient cove lighting, uplighting, and bathroom lights. Low voltage halogen bulbs cover the rest of the house. The backyard holds what is arguably the most fun design feature: a large rectangular trampoline overlooking Noe and beyond.
