Images Description Credits
The 6,636 square foot house is on a one acre gently sloping lot with two heritage oak trees in the foothills of Pasadena. The clients wanted an efficient sustainable house including a 11.34 KW solar electrical system, using only sustainably sourced building materials.

The design is an exposed structural post and beam concept where all structural elements are visible.  Exposed steel tube bracing was designed for shear, eliminating conventional shear walls and increasing windows and views.

The courtyard is the exterior entertainment space that the house opens onto from all entertainment spaces. The house is completely transparent and opens to the exterior on all sides.

The house uses the same building materials on the interior and exterior creating transparency between inside and outside. This is a different contemporary house it is not all white. Day or night this house radiates warmth.
