The 700 Palms Residence by Ehrlich Architects
This outstanding project, designed by specialists of Ehrlich Architects and located in California, was called 700 Palms Residence. Thanks to extensive glazing this large house seems very light and almost weightless. But sustainability was a major concern, so architects used concrete flooring to absorb the sun?s warmth in the winter, operable windows and large sliding doors to facilitate natural ventilation and low-maintenance recycled materials. Customer of the project wanted to get a modern and elegant accommodation, which would have high connection between the interior and beautiful garden. And the walls, entirely made of glass, look simply amazing, dissolving the barriers between indoors and outdoors. The facade is made of steel and it was also the wish of the owner.
