270-degree view of the Pacific Ocean is used as much as possible starting from courtyard near the pool and ending with desk on the third floor. Environmentally sustainable design features passive solar electricity, solar water and floor heating, natural air flow and energy-efficient appliances. The house is designed by Shubin & Donaldson.
