Los Angeles home utilizes grills for shade– concept for shipping container home

second skin home, cooling grills for house

This unique home is sitting on the steep slope of Crestwood Hills in Los Angeles. 3,700sq ft. the Jovanovich dream home was developed on existing buildings adding to it sustainable and progressive design and construction methods.

Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects were the guys behind the project, adding a second skin layer to the buildings added an assisted shade that protects the building from Californian sunshine and also works to reduce heat build up in the home as well as offering a privacy screen.

An idea that can also be utilized for shipping container homes to help keep the heat out. Either directly or in a canopy form. Not a shipping container home in design but its the grill concept that I found interesting.
