L.A.-based architecture firm Standard is setting a new standard for modern residential design; one that blends creature comforts with a contemporary, urban edge. Set among the trees on a sloped lot in Los Angeles, Tree House is a modern home with luxury features and eco-friendly elements that make it a one-of-a-kind residence. This 167m2 house of concrete, wood and glass boasts a southern exposure with amazing natural vistas and the Los Angeles basin beyond. A massive ash tree at the front of the house sets the tone for this nature-loving design, complete with passive solar technology for climate control. On the main level, floor-to-ceiling glass opens onto a deck that cantilevers over the hillside. The home’s second level overhangs the concrete deck below. In its entirety, the house boasts a strong horizontal presence with its roof, deck and two storeys, balancing out the tall vertical trees that surround the house. Standard

I appologise, but isn't this the ALL SOLAR HOUSE MAnufactured back in the late 1970s. I don't miss a design very often, forgive me if I'm off.
