    “which is green to the extent that MRP used dual-pane windows/doors, an energy-efficient HVAC system and appliances, and eco-friendly materials”

    Who knew that having the equivalent R-value walls 1/4th lower than standard building practices qualifies as eco-friendly these days?

    It’s an interesting design on a beautiful site, but with those puny overhangs above the southern facing windows and high thermal mass of the flooring guarantees that HVAC system will be working it’s little heart out 24/7 during the summer heat.

    And with that price, along with a flat roof, solar thermal and PV should be a no-brainer.

      I agree. I’m not so sure this design translates all that well from California to the hot and dry Utah desert. Beautiful home, though.

        I agree i love the interor decor. Im curious if the house is passive at least its not necessary for everything to have solar panals but when you spend that much you might as well add them. there also might be good wind paths on the site….

      Lota east west glass for a place that has a martian landscape. Like their work in general but they are making the same mistake that tract homes do.
