Gabion stone walls were made using the excavation waste generated while grading the site. These walls act as a bridge between building and landscape, providing both function and decoration. The architect made sure to make the entire structure not only beautiful, but sustainable as well. According to the architect: “Sustainable materials, technologies and techniques are used throughout, including recycled steel, sustainably harvested wood, BIBS insulation in oversized wall and ceiling cavities, on-demand hot water, low-flow fixtures and convection heat. Fenestration is designed to encourage passive solar radiation in winter. In summer, natural ventilation, large overhangs and seasonally-deployed, exterior-mounted sun shades (made from fabric used to shield fruit trees on nearby orchards) protect the glass from summer sun.”
