Villa Hedera Helix
The Old World aesthetic of this residence belies one of Persinger Architects’ most advanced sustainable projects. The zero-net energy building is powered by a robust solar energy system. Completely fireproof, the exterior shell is a mixture of styrofoam and concrete to help maintain steady temperature levels without using extra energy. The hydronic heating system supports indoor air quality. The stunning pool incorporates a shelter that shields swimmers from the sun and reduces evaporation to almost nothing. Timeless, Italian-inspired finishes were selected to reflect the home’s setting amongst the oldest chardonnay vines in the Green Valley appellation.
