M2 Building Design: This building design integrates multiple aspects of the natural environment and efficiency.  Starting with the most obvious; it sits on the ocean 1) we capture solar using high-efficiency panels and the wind energy 2) we use direction of the wind to minimize the impact on the building 3) high density insulation was also part of the planning process. The solar panels located on the roof are, enough to support the entire home for heating and hot water and major appliances.  We utilize simple yet modern lines to minimize waste and capitalize on design.   High performance doors and windows help retain warmth in the winter months and protect against UV rays in the summer.  They also help to keep the interior space at a constant, minimizing energy usage in all seasons.
