This project for the new construction of netzero buildings around a courtyard comprises a single family home with detached ADU. A sensitive approach to the neighborhood maximizes the use of the tight semi-urban lot yet maintains areas for gardening and gathering. A high-performing building envelope including a "monopoly roof", passive and active sustainable strategies including a solar PV system, and balanced ventilation round out the suite of energy-saving and comfort enhancing approaches. A modern open plan for each building connects to the courtyard, yet allows two different sets of inhabitants to enjoy the landscape with privacy.
