Malibu 5 Residence Design by Kanner Architects

The building faces the Pacific Ocean to take improvement of coastal breezes, energy-providing solar gain, natural light and views.

Conceived as a inactive solar house, the building has photovoltaic panels and solar thermal panels for home hot water on the roof. The photovoltaic panels produce power for the house during the day.

The quantity of energy produced exceeds the owner’s need and the rest contributes to the local power grid. The power meter runs counter-clockwise while the sun is up.

Ground-level real floors act as heat sinks, pulling in the Sun’s energy during the day and releasing it at night. They also provide healthy heating, making use of water heated on the roof. - via -
