The Flyway View House is designed by Jon Anderson Architecture and located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The design’s concept was to maximize views of the bird habitat and to take advantage of solar exposure and passive ventilation. Simple sustainable materials and the thoughtful use of glass blends the indoor and outdoor living spaces. Overhangs protect living areas from the summer heat but exploit the sun for passive heat gain during winters. All exterior walls are done in concrete blocks. The roof deck is made of steel. The large glass areas are built from storefront components with a black anodized finish.

    No way I am seeing this aright… unlined uninsulated galvanised iron roof? Concrete block walls and said roof combined with marble bathroom bench. Taste. Get some.
