We LOVE our house on the American River. We have settled in nicely. The elevator has been helpful. The radiant heat is awesome. In winter the driveway is very icy and slippery (whee!). In summer when Sacto is 100 degrees the house stays in the 70’s. A concern will always exist regarding how well the hillsides hold. In the meantime we have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors. Thank you for designing such a solid house. Watching the snow fall outside the huge windows is dreamlike.

We focus on architecture as functional art. As Solar Environmental Architects, we embrace a wide scope of appropriate technologies to design buildings that respond to the individual client’s needs, the site, the climate and the regional character.

Solar Design

As an early pioneer in passive solar design, David has designed solar architecture for virtually all climate zones and has authored three books which have helped define the principles of architectural climate design and the types of architectural solutions which are the mainstream concepts today.
