Net-Zero Sanctuary
Palo Alto, CA

We designed this 1,000 sq. ft. private sanctuary as one part of a completely sustainable compound that includes the greening of a historic Pedro de Lemos home. While the two buildings function as one from an energy standpoint, we used distinct forms and materials to create a modern complement to the existing home. Cutting-edge building technologies applied throughout the design create a net-zero energy and carbon-neutral building.
