Sustainable House ideas / Low/Rise by SAW

San Francisco–based Spiegel Aihara Workshop designed this bold but sustainable single-family house through compositing the traditional forms of the California ranch house and farm tower.

Architects: Spiegel Aihara Workshop
Location: Palo Alto, California, USA
Photography: Bruce Damonte

The structure is long, low, and narrow, settling into the tree-lined landscape and allowing yards to surround and permeate each room.

The sustainable building can effectively shut down various program spaces, allowing for an intimate feeling and low energy consumption when inhabited by a single person, but allows for a spacious and integrated configuration for ten.

A three-story tower and roof deck emerges among vibrant evergreens, providing a unique vantage point of the surrounding townscape.
