Borrowing colors, textures and materials from nature, this rustic yet contemporary home enjoys a symbiotic relationship with its surroundings. Natural, wildlife-friendly landscaping is the perfect backdrop for elegant living. Double walls filled with foam insulation achieve CBD’s first super-insulated home, affording extreme energy efficiency and the owners’ desired aesthetic. There’s an intentional absence of VOC materials and almost no added finishes. Plaster, concrete and stucco are imbued with color, the ceiling is raw, unfinished wood and thoughtfully placed windows coax in the abundant natural light. This structure proves that a well-designed home can be personal, responsible and exceptional while reflecting the owners’ tastes and lifestyle.
