Macy Architecture's Point Loma residence in California 

The clients desired a home that would make the most of its site, be low-maintenance and incorporate a variety of energy and resource-conserving features. The living, dining, kitchen and master bedroom areas are located on the upper level and oriented to capture views of the Pacific Ocean, Mission Bay and La Jolla. The exterior consists of an exposed steel seismic-resisting frame infilled with a rainscreen fa├žade system utilizing super-durable phenolic wood paneling. In addition to employing passive solar and natural ventilation strategies, the design incorporates net-metering photovoltaics, solar water heating and a rainwater recovery system (for irrigation purposes). Landscaping consists of drought-tolerant and native plant varieties.
