It is true that when we plan for our future house we usually create a list to consider. This list is consisting of the demands and requests that we can give to our chosen designer.

Through the pictures above taken by Steve Back, we have understood the importance of sustainability in this house design. We clearly see the relevance of its L-shaped building to avail the solar energy, natural ventilation and as well as the energy usage in including three water tanks, reverse brick veneer walls, sun control louvers and shutters, hot water solar panels and photovoltaic cells. We may say that the Tzannes Associates brilliantly planned the house design and functions.
