In addition to the use of reclaimed wood, the residence pays special attention to its environmental impact. The lap pool was built with the same dark lava rock synonymous with house, and it also offers passive water heating from the sun. Two separate photovoltaic arrays have been mounted onto the roof and together are able to generate enough renewable energy to power the entire home. Finally, the designed has been topped off with a rainwater collection system that gathers water and redirects it to three dry wells, replenishing the aquifer.
With over six bedrooms and multiple common areas, this home is certainly not lacking space and most likely is a second home for a more financially fortunate family. However, we can’t help but applaud the gorgeous design in addition to the extensive use of recycled materials throughout.
