Multiple Modes of Energy Capture Create ZNE Office Building A Case Study from Davis, California By Jonathan Hammond Four years ago, my firm INDIGO Hammond + Playle Architects purchased an abandoned 1960’s Vintage Dairy Queen restaurant in downtown Davis, California, for the purpose of expanding it and repurposing it as an architectural office/studio. We liked the “cool” mid-century modern curving, gull wing-shaped glulam beams that supported the roof. Our goal was to enlarge the building to create a beautiful, sustainable, zero-net energy (ZNE) studio/ office for our firm. 26 SPRING 2017 SOLAR TODAY Copyright © 2014 American Solar Energy Society.
