On the hills of the Pacific Palisades sits the Vicino House, designed by Timothy McCarthy of Forma Design Group. Originally built in the 1950's, this refurbishing project added some square feet and focused on green design and sustainability. Featuring a 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Monica Bay this house is truly stunning. This project was designed to be green, and utilizes sustainable building materials. The Vicino House is also equipped with a solar thermal and radiant floor heating system, installed by Enviro Plumbing, which provides about 70% of the house's hot water and very efficient heating. Ultimately resulting in a LEED for homes platinum Certification, no easy feat.
