Sustainable Modern Home Conversion in California: Temple Hills Residence
Temple Hills Residence is an imposing two-story contemporary home located in Laguna Beach, in California, USA. Envisioned by studio Schola Architecture, the project is a remodel of an old house located on a hillside and currently integrates sustainable strategies, such as solar orientation, deep overhangs, operable glass and the use of renewable building materials. Here is more from the architects: “Nestled into a steeply sloping 5,000-square foot site, the volumes step up the hillside to the rear of the existing home creating an ascending series of interior and exterior spaces, giving access to all levels of the property. While the existing home creates the traditional base for the house, the new addition exploits the modular nature of post and beam connections. A monolithic concrete block mass anchors the addition; from which structure and glass pin wheel off creating ever dematerializing living spaces that open up to the views as one moves up through the home”.
