After seeing the Twenty Five Lusk Lounge in San Francisco, designed by CCS Architecture, this amazing Los Altos Hills Residence proves that the architects have an eye for fine details. The San Francisco-based studio CCS Architecture designed the 6,000 square foot residence for a family of five, creating all the spaces according to the client’s brief – a family-friendly space arrangement that easily connects to the outdoors, offering comfort and fresh air. Sustainable features like energy systems (“the 4-killowatt photovoltaic solar array on the roof generates about half of the home’s electricity“), natural materials and building methods reduce the carbon footprint and allow the family to enjoy their home while protecting the environment.

Located in Los Altos Hills, California, the modern house features two breezeways that separate the structure into three parts: “The result is a contemporary compound with well-defined outdoor spaces that are comfortable during hot summer days. An L-shaped main level plan houses the primary living areas and garage. The second floor bedroom wing, clad in cedar, is a long bar that is rotated in relation to the first floor. It creates sheltered zones below as well as a pair of roof decks for the four bedrooms. The second floor meets the ground at its north end, forming the pool house. Between the pool house and the family room, a breezeway frames a view of the property and Silicon Valley.” Using a natural palette, the architects erected the two stories of the house with careful consideration for the environment and maximized the connection to the surroundings.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
