What Houzz contributors are saying:

The same house and living area from the outside show the extension of the roof and an intermediate awning that both cut down on direct sunlight. With all-glass exterior walls, it is helpful to use architectural elements to modulate how much light enters the interiors throughout the year; summer light is stopped but winter light enters unimpeded.
John Hill added this to Regional Modern: Boston
Moving closer to Boston (Westport, to be precise) to another house by Maryann Thompson Architects, we can see how the design responds to the site, a meadow. Large glass walls bring in plenty of sunlight, but the summer sun is reduced via large overhangs. Ringed by a porch, the house appears to be raised on a plinth, as if it floats on the meadow.

Love the double roof line and walls of windows. Extended roof also shades deck and reduces summer sun inside house.

example of lower shading element to break up tall glassy wall. if you wanted to keep the south wall tall.....we could set a wood beam at 10' above the floor long the living space - at 9' intervals and it would cantilever out over the porch to make our trellis. Then you don't need steel columns or a flat roof. But we've accomplished breaking up the height of the wall from a scale standpoint and shading it from harsh sun. This could be cool. We could also locate your interior lights on these lower beams to light down and up for washing the ceiling. They would be easier to get to and change out at this height.

big widows are important and i love this mordern house but what i really like is the long hallway that is almost a room of itself with all windows leading to the master bedroom that than opens up onto the yard for the ultimate in fresh air.
