Vertically stacked and set into a hillside, Malibu 5 is a sustainable home of environmentally friendly and recycled materials. The owners are contributing energy to the power grid during daylight hours. Conceived as a passive solar house, it has photovoltaic panels that generate power for the house during the day and solar thermal panels for domestic hot water on the roof. Ground-level concrete floors act as heat sinks, pulling in the sun’s energy during the day and releasing it at night. They also provide radiant heating, making use of water heated on the roof. The home faces the Pacific Ocean to take advantage of coastal breezes, energy-providing solar gain, natural light and views.
