Designed for a local artist to enjoy, this residence is located just south of Collingwood, in the heart of the Clearview area.

A broad selection of sustainable technologies, including a geothermal lake loop and green house set this project apart from others in the area. The building itself draws inspiration from a number of intimate relationships and views, both through the adjacent woodland, as well as across the nearby pond.

The buildings program is extensive and with the clients desire to maintain the majority of this over one level the design team were particularly aware of the need to integrate the building into its surroundings in a subtle way. Consequently this quickly became a main focus, and thus gave the scheme real direction,  with each space located appropriately within the overall layout so to take advantage of the site and its beauty as well as to make sure that the building was as user friendly and functional as possible...

A Smart Hillside Home Incorporates Solar Orientation & Passive Ventilation

A Smart Hillside Home Incorporates Solar Orientation & Passive Ventilation | Cultura de massa no Século XXI (Mass Culture in the XXI Century) | Scoop.it

Capturing distant views of Mt. Diablo and East Bay, this 4,400 square feet modern home is perched on a steep slope in the Californian Sonoma hills.

Vista Del Valle accentuates its location with its slightly sloping roof, under which modern interior spaces define the inhabitant’s lifestyle.  

Inside, warm spaces reconstruct the feeling of being outside, but keep the atmosphere unburdened by swift weather changes. Overhangs protect the light-flooded kitchen, dining and living spaces from overheating, while windows and glass doors welcome the cooling breeze. Clerestory windows, solar hot water heating, radiant floor heating, alongside the orientation and passive ventilation create a comfortable atmosphere without charging the bills.

Imagined as a modern oasis of comfort within natural surroundings, the residence was designed by Zimmerman and Associates, who dressed the whole house in a carefully constructed skin – horizontal cedar siding and stucco intertwine to compose a suite of volumetric spaces adapted to the existing site conditions, natural lighting and needs of a modern lifestyle.
