Solar orientation, natural ventilation, and outdoor connections shaped this large house into long wings. The one-room-wide wings allow windows and doors on two or three sides of each room. Outside, the wings define livable courtyards.
All main rooms receive southern winter sun, while deep porches facing east and west shade the house from summer sun. A large screen porch adjacent to the dining area encourages direct enjoyment of the beautiful setting.
