The Atherton Residence by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects, which is based between San Francisco and San Jose in California’s great bay, is an urban escape with passionate focus on nature. The Atherton Residence is actually four buildings in one, as the main unit has been separated into smaller units that sit on the water’s edge. This home features a sustainable, conscious design that rests upon a calm pond and quiet, flowing trees as it’s backdrop. Hoping to commune with nature, not to disturb it, the Atherton Residence features a solar hot water system on it’s roof, radiant floors and natural ventilation for cooling in the hot California’s summer.
