Desert Shadow is a creative design concept from Allegretti Architects. This 2,100 square-foot custom home is now under construction near Santa Fe, New Mexico. The home will be carved into a gentle hillside on a remote 40-acre property. The structure’s entire energy needs will be met by off-grid means. An array of photovoltaic panels will provide 50 kw of electrical power, furnishing all of the home’s electrical requirements. Other sustainable features will include passive solar space heating, rainwater harvesting, permaculture landscaping, and solar heating for domestic water. Walls will be insulated to R-40 and roofs to R-80. Advanced framing and building techniques will further reduce energy use through conservation at the building envelope. The design anticipates a HERS rating above 50 and qualifies for a New Mexico state tax credit
