Navy Street

Located in Venice, California, this compound includes a main and guest house, a solar, thermal heated pool which sits atop a 12 car garage, a 3 story elevator, and Goldbrecht windows and doors.  Many sustainable features were included such as; storm water collection for reuse, hydronic radiant heating, photovoltaic panels, a solar chimney, and sustainably harvested tropical hardwood details.  The main facade consists of five vertical, tilt-up slabs of concrete which function as a sound barrier against a busy street and are staggered to allow windows in between.
