The modern one Passive house is a project by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects, which was realized in 2008 in Atherton, California. Atherton Residence is located on the peninsula in the south of San Francisco, consists of 4 small buildings – main house, garage, study and pool house – and offers sustainable and comfortable living.
Passive house conveys an open attitude towards life
The one surrounded by water Passive house has modern loft-style living spaces. Floor-to-ceiling glazing strengthens the connection to nature and increases the feel-good factor. Environmentally friendly and sustainable materials were used for the construction, in combination with fly ash concrete and formaldehyde-free materials.
Modern passive house in a great location
That Passive house is equipped with a photovoltaic system and solar and hot water systems in the roof and is passively cooled by awnings, parasols, canopies, windows and sliding doors. The stone floors are equipped with radiant heating – this means that the living space is heated by the increased surface temperature while the air temperature is low at the same time.
Innovative architecture and design solutions
That Passive house from Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects offers its owners plenty of space for relaxation and creative work. The open window fronts flood the living rooms with warm light. Modern cuisine invites you to indulge in culinary delights! A pond is also embedded in the garden, which ensures a balanced climate at high temperatures.
