Power House by Markoff Fullerton Architects

The Power house is sited to create generous yet intimate outdoor spaces that celebrate the dramatic landscape and make place for living. The modern forms of the house are punctuated with large openings and balconies and projecting roof eaves that mediate between interior and exterior. Interior flowing spaces are anchored by detailed elements like the skylit stairs and the kitchen.

Panels imbedded in the ceilings provide radiant heating and cooling powered by electric heat pumps; the water heater is hybrid electric; interior air is filtered and humidity controlled. Photovoltaic arrays and Tesla Powerwalls power the house.
