Remodeled House With Large Manmade Pond Near It

This home is on the peninsula south of San Francisco on internal suburban flag lot. It was built in the 1950s but recently remodeled. A cool man-made pond that has been there before turned into a thing that makes everyday life feel like it is in a vacation spot. The site consists of four buildings – the main house, the study, the pool house and a garage. All of them focus on the pond, garden and pool. There is also a terrace near the pond that is separated from the interior by sliding glass doors. The roofs hide photovoltaic and solar hot water panels. The house is heated with a radiation system in the stone floors and, despite the hot climate, is not air-conditioned, but passively cooled with a combination of overhangs, blinds and operable windows. It also contains many environmentally friendly building materials, including high-ash aerated concrete, formaldehyde-free enclosures, and denim insulation. [Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects]
