Shifting angles define this inviting and compelling home design. An earth berm provides added thermal mass that cools in the summer, warms in the winter. Super-insulated walls and passive solar features augment a high-efficiency, wood-burning fireplace and a backup, in-floor, radiant-heat system. The design makes the most of glorious sunsets over the distant Jemez Mountains.
