Linea Residence G

Poon Design Inc. as Architects

Winner of the highest national honor, 2018 Best in Housing, from The American Institute of Architects—this production house sets a new standard for the speculative tract housing industry. To the home buying audience, Residence G offers a production home that equals the presence of custom luxury estates. And Residence G does so at a record low construction cost—one-fourth the cost per square foot of the high end residences seen throughout Southern California.


Coined Museum Modern, our design opposes the predictable Taco-Bell-style or the cliché Mid-Century Modern tract homes prevalent in the area. In the past few years, Residence G and parallel other sustainable home designs by this architect and developer have been built and sold, totaling over 200 completed homes in the Palm Springs area.


The home is a steward for the environment: passive cooling with expansive roof overhangs, under counter instant water heaters, rooftop solar panels providing a base 6kW solar package with potential increase of capacity, reflective energy efficient cool roof. Our custom conditioned ceiling duct space has pioneered a brand new technique in the desert region that has saved money in labor, materials and energy. Materials and labor are locally source, zero VOC finishes and adhesives are used, and recycled or rapidly renewal content and materials are installed.

 

The 4,780 square foot Residence G is situated on approximately 20,000 square feet. The program comprises a home of three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a three-car garage, along with a one-bedroom detached guest house. With 90 feet of continuous glass sliding doors at 10 feet 6 inches tall, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, the residence allows indoor outdoor living, capturing views of the surrounding desert mountains, and appreciating the California climate.
