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.

The Bar piece is produced by SieMatic cabinets. It is walnut. not sure about the finish as it was produced by the cabinet company.

The cabinets are actually a wood textured laminate by SieMatic. The wood eating bar is a solid wood, also by SieMatic

What paint colors on walls would complement these cabinets? - Photo Inspired us to choose same contemporary look and fairly close light bleached color cabinets. Last step: need your help with color choices for walls touching these cabinets (the ones here that are covered with glass tiles). I love that colors here complement each other rather than contrast. Floor is uniform charcoal. Marble tile backsplash-cream w touches of brown. Granite countertops-taupe, brown, black, cream. Will so appreciate your help with specific color suggestions. Thanks much for your help.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The back of the house consists entirely of open living spaces, including the kitchen, allowing flow of light and air. Like the rest of the house, the kitchen was designed in a simple and efficient style. Custom cabinets, Caesarstone counters and glass tile combine in a seamless and modern look. Counters: Caesarstone
