Clean, Green California House Design

Check out this clean, , the aptly named Caterpillar House designed by Feldman Architecture. This ranch style home stretches along a grassy hilltop in a linear plan that maximizes the views. And this California house indeed has a deep connection to nature, from the inside out. Earth excavated to make way for the home was actually used in constructing its walls. The glass-enclosed main floor invites natural light and views in, while just outside, a sheltered outdoor entertaining area lets the homeowners enjoy the outdoors in any weather. But the connection to the Earth is more than skin-deep – this sustainable house employs eco-friendly features like its rammed-earth walls, which act as a thermal layer to maintain comfortable temperatures inside; a rainwater recycling system; natural ventilation via the glass wall of the house; and photovoltaic panels that allow this passive solar home to operate off the grid.
