Originally designed and built in 1952, the residence’s iconic features included a deep mono-pitch roof overhang with two wing walls dividing outdoor patios for public and private functions. These design elements were not only iconic, but functioned as passive elements in a sustainable strategy providing shade to the residence’s south façade.

A renovation of the residence undertaken in the 1990s removed these iconic features and expanded the interior envelope of the building to include the previous patio spaces. A building once in harmony with nature was now fighting against it.   Without passive shading  a second HVAC system had to be added to keep a modest 2,300 Sf. home at a livable temperature.
