Armstrong III -- rear facade

Rear of the Armstrong Residence III is composed almost entirely of glass. This facade faces south and collects solar energy (i.e., during the winter). A trellis structure allows vines and vegetation to grow up to shield that house from the sun's harsh rays in the summer.

The larged glazed area to the right is the double height living space.


  1. Thank you, Andy, for posting this. I really appreciate it.

  2. I forgot to ask. Is the pool gone?
