The current restoration completed in 2016 restores these iconic elements by extending out from the existing footprint.  The restored overhanging roof and wing-walls return to work as both passive sustainability features and key elements in a spatial sequence of public and private spaces that merge the indoor and outdoor.

In combination with a fully redesigned southern façade comprised of full height sliding glass panels, the new overhang blocks harsh summer sun while allowing for the sun to heat the residence passively throughout the winter.

When needed, the residence now features a high efficiency HVAC system that is partially powered by solar panels located on the roof.

Area: 2.3 m²
