Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.

It is SB Architects that built the first lavish private home of the budding development that is expected to see six more luxury residences in the next year or so. The 7200-sqaure-foot desert estate is all about an open energy-savvy and comfortable living environment where the scenery becomes a part of the overall narrative.
One of the major features that defined the house was the need for complete accessibility making every part of the home across its two levels wheelchair-friendly. Clear paths and easy access points add to this feature with beautiful lighting and top-notch insulation completing a classy contemporary residence set in an idyllic backdrop.

An antique cottage has a strong historic appeal and rocks the shabby almost abandoned look. It’s truly an off-the-grid paradise for those who are happy to trade luxury for nature’s delight. Sometimes the exterior of such a tiny hut almost loses itself amongst the matching trees. The dark and shabby state of the wood makes it an outstanding piece that embodies the concept of nature as the main building element.
