Taiji Residence

The use of environmentally conscious materials throughout the house helps to emphasize its warmth and beauty. This house is protected by the beautifully crafted dragons at the gate and the weathervane on the roof by Paul Riley. Drew Maran Construction was the contractor.

This new residence includes many examples of responsible green design. South-facing windows, photovoltaic panels, radiant-heated concrete slabs, and massive thermal walls create passive solar heating. The exterior of simple low-sloped roofs allows the house to be nested into the low-lying neighborhood, while the interior gracefully opens to high-curved ceilings. Non-caustic clay walls have natural pigments and recycled, reclaimed aggregates. Bamboo/paper stone cabinets and recycled glass add surprises of unusual texture and color. Almost every room in the house opens to a garden.
