Buena Vista Modern Masterpiece

Recently the Super Bowl 50 hangout of Beyonce and Jay-Z, this “uber-green” net zero energy residence incorporates too many elements of sustainability and green building to count, yet it’s the modern architectural style and design sensitivity to the site that really take center stage.

Portola Valley Modern

Stunning valley views from this heavily wooded site, this earthy modern home was deftly woven in between dozens of blue oaks. A very open modern home, but with earthy touches of stone, carefully stained wood siding to match the blue oak tree bark, and lots of glass to take advantage of views all around, but still maintains plenty of privacy. Careful modulation of windows, glass doors overhangs, and trees to create a truly net zero energy home.
