Saratoga Rolling Hills

This Saratoga estate is situated to follow the form of the hillside brow. The interconnection of the different elements of the house forms a modern sculptural composition in the rural landscape. An infinity edge pool and roof-top deck highlight magnificent valley views.

The contemporary home integrates high-end design with a commitment to green building. The building forms incorporate varying flat roof planes and sloped rooflines to conceal solar panels. Passive ventilation techniques are incorporated to reduce energy use. The exterior cladding utilizes ventilated facade technology allowing the skin to breathe, creating an air barrier, and naturally reducing heating and cooling loads.
