Jewell Box is Tropical House was designed by Magnus Architects.
From Architects : ” Having traveled the world, the owners wanted to come home to their own tropical paradise.
The garage/study was separated from the main house, creating a view corridor from the rear yard to the bay. the canopy overhang develops a tropical lanai; it directs prevailing western breezes across the second story windows and shades the expanse of glass from southern exposure. ”

Ford house was built with very low energy building clad in black zinc sheeting. The house comprises three distinct elements – main living accommodation, studio/guest wing, and garage. Designed by Simon Winstaneley Architects in contemporary design. The use of black cladding is designed to echo the sheet metal clad agricultural barns nearby and to be visually recessive. Some windows are picked out in strong acid colors to contrast with the black zinc. The house is insulated to Passive House Standards and is heated using geothermal heat pump, solar panels and a whole house heat recovery ventilation system.

Ansley Glass House, the house with Glass Curtain-Walls was designed by Brian Bell and David Yocum Architects. The use of glass curtain-walls as a cladding material establishes a permeable boundary between the house and its immediate context, provides for light and views, and materially engages the glass skyscrapers visible on the immediate horizon.Located in an historic downtown neighborhood, with a mature tree canopy and direct views to the immediate city skyline. The project replaces a series of additions to a 1910-era house with a new glass-lined living space including a garage, kitchen, family room, library, and a new stair linking three levels. The structure is capped with an occupiable roof deck surrounded by glass guardrails and clerestories, offering diagonal sightlines up to the midtown skyscrapers beyond and into the living spaces below.

Designed by Cheng Design, this house inspired by Airstream trailers and Quonset huts in near San Diego. The design pits hard-edged industrial materials — concrete block, galvanized siding, steel columns, stainless steel cable and welded I-beams — against softer residential elements, such as stained-wood siding and a grid of exposed wood framing that supports the roof.
