Rialto Beach

Rialto Beach is a twenty-two home subdivision comprised of both single and attached units designed for modern living with the capability to "Grow Green" through optimized solar orientation, rain water harvesting and automated energy management. The homes are oriented to provide ample sunlight to the main living spaces, as well as natural ventilation through the use of an open floor plan on the main level, and clerestory windows in all bedrooms. With narrow urban lots, two floorplates are layered together to provide adjacencies of private and public space, with the masonry core providing services to the larger mass of living areas and private bedrooms.
