The roof features a cool roof, which reflects heat back to the sky rather than having it absorbed into the house, and 26 solar panels that often cause the meter to roll backward. Photo by Jessica Haye and Clark Hsiao.
underground green roof home - This rectangular structure designed by Deca is very eco-friendly, utilizing natural light and heat, and cooling cross-winds. Built between the slopes of two adjacent hillsides, the house has a simple box-like plan that blends into the surrounding desert, while still incorporating traditional Greek design elements. The house is visible only in the center, and even then could pass as a half-buried ruin more than a modern home.
