, August 24th, 2013. Greem House, The Solar Umbrella Stands the Test of Time.

The friendly, simple eco-home created by the owners and the principals of Pugh + Scarpa Architects has long been a local icon in Venice, California, inspired by Paul Rudolph’s 1953 Umbrella House design.Solar hydronic heating panels heat water for the radiant floor and hot showers after a day at the beach.On the roof, a storm-water recycling system that harvests every precious drop of California’s water.The local icon, known as the Solar Umbrella House is literally entirely covered by a “solar umbrella” that provides the home’s electricity, while leaving its back and front open to the Santa Monica breezes.Built using heat-retaining concrete and glazed overhangs and windows that open to allow for cross ventilation, this house manages its own interior temperature.Yet, for all that it is a local icon, really, the house is just a simple child-friendly unpretentious family home for Angela Brooks, and Lawrence Scarpa, and family.
