                                          Costello

            On a winding road in the hills above St. Helena in the Napa Valley, our challenge was to
      build a "Modern Mediterranean" villa; providing great care in creating the symmetry and
      finish details to realize the client's design requirements. Construction began using ICF -
      Integrated Concrete Form - utilizing 100% polystyrene.

                                                                                  

           All interior and exterior plaster was color integrated to achieve the desired effect. In order to
      create clean lines and stark transitions between materials, most door trim, crown-style moldings
      were eliminated.

           The villa is equipped with a solar hot water heater, radiant and domestic heating system and
      a solar PV electric system for maximum energy efficiency.

           In combining the best of the old and the new, the roof uses 200 year old reclaimed Italian
      "S" style shingles in place of newer virgin material.

          Great care was taken during the construction process to keep the one lane road accessible
      to the neighbors. In keeping with our commitment to sustainability, the soils that were required
      to be removed during the course of construction were either reused or sent to a local infill
      project 20 miles away. Additionally, each of the unique homes is equipped with Solar Radiant
      Heated Flooring and domestic hot water along with Solar PV Electric Systems. The highly
      insulated ICF construction and passive solar design were used whenever possible for the most
      energy efficiency.
