An eco-friendly, modern ranch designed by ZDS Architects (Interiors - Henderson Kelly) is currently being featured in the May 2010 issue of Palm Springs Life Magazine

The most effective way to promote energy efficiency is to design a house that takes full advantage of natural light, passive solar energy, shading, cross-ventilation, and efficient space planning.  Doing so — by studying sun angles, prevailing winds, and general site orientation — reduces the overall energy load required to live comfortably. Once these fundamental architectural moves are established, design and specification of artificial lighting and interior climate control enhance the overall efficiency.
