The Weston Residence is a sustainable house developed by design firm Specht Harpman Architects that was built to work with the environment. This home is a great example of ways architects can fuse nature and building together so that both exist harmoniously without compromising the other.

Traditionally in architectural projects the natural land mass is altered in some way to make room for building. However the Weston Residence was built in such a way that the natural environment was embedded into the home's design rather than being compromised. The house has a modern loft structure including features such as green roof gardens, glass wall panels and a foundation that was built over top of a cliff.
