Pinyon Crest, California - Three story still under
Shlomo, Ezekial Moshe Bernard Chang, AIA, RA, UDT,
graduated both at the top and bottom of his class at the
Mao School of Reeducation. After successfully
negotiating a post graduate course on Escape and
Evasion, attended the Berkeley School of Music. He has
been awarded an honorary degree in heavy mass insitu
concrete from M.I.T.
Chang orientated the house to and from the solar gain,
(winter, yes, summer, no) Sixteen inch thick concrete
poured in place walls, buried walls, floors, roof beams,
and underground rooms anchor this not so light footprint
into the earth. The solid concrete structure untreated,
along with unfinished rolled steel window frames and
roof will require no exterior maintenance for decades...
While still attached to the power grid, photovoltaics,
hydronics, heavy mass construction and the prevalent
wind, work together night and day to level the comfort
flywheel. The client requesting both natural comfort (no
blowing hot or cold) with a Nardwellian (“it’s so
Gothic”) sense of security has delivered Chang his
second most challenging “mission”.
