A Fine Romance: A Recycled Steel Home in Southern California

Solar power and high efficiency gadgets make this Los Angeles home an environmental heaven.

In the mild Los Angeles climate, outdoor living space is essential. Several times a week, Claudio and Jana eat dinner on the covered patio behind their office, and they often entertain there as well. The outdoor room adjoins the couples giardino segreto (secret garden), which is protected on all sides.
