Zero Energy House

This project aims to be the first residence in San Francisco that is completely self-powering and carbon neutral. The architecture has been developed in conjunction with the mechanical systems and landscape design, each influencing the other to arrive at an integrated solution. Working from the historic façade, the design preserves the traditional formal parlors transitioning to an open plan at the central stairwell which defines the distinction between eras. The new floor plates act as passive solar collectors and radiant tubing redistributes collected warmth to the original, North facing portions of the house. Careful consideration has been given to the envelope design in order to reduce the overall space conditioning needs, retrofitting the old and maximizing insulation in the new.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The bathrooms use recycled materials and have plenty of natural light through the skylights and interior windows to cut down on electricity needs. Water-saving fixtures and low-flow showerheads were also installed.

The shelving niche in the wall next to each sink would be great to have. If you'd like, you could have a cabinet with a door to hide things instead.
