Heeschen Residence

location: Campbell, Ca
design: 2007-2009
area: 2247 sf
The client, quite specifically, wanted to transform an early ‘50’s ranch into a passive solar, highly insulated, super energy efficient green home. Features include fly ash concrete, FSC framing, reclaimed and recycled redwood siding with rainscreen, Serious Windows, minisplit hvac, on-demand water heating, provisions for solar thermal & solar photovoltaic, and rainwater collection. To accomplish the passive solar, the design re-oriented the ridge line and vaulted the ceilings in the main living areas. Overall the design is a thoroughly sensible package.
