My friend Danny Rojany invited me to see his brand new Venice beach “Bella Casa”. The most amazing and energy efficient modern home around the westside beach cities of Los Angeles CA.

As a sustainable technologies specialist I must admit I was feeling like a kid in Disneyland looking at all the green (energy efficient)  features at the house.  He installed a nice  Solar pv system for the energy, solar thermal to heat the water , radiant floors heating and single room energy efficient air conditioners.

The second thing that I liked the most was the living walls made with succulent plants covering most walls of the outdoor spaces in the first level.

Floor to ceiling glass walls allow the indoor/outdoor space to blend in a very smooth way. There are multiple outdoor spaces through the house including a west facing private rooftop deck that gets refreshing ocean breeze.
