Description

The floor plan for the William Durham house in Palm Desert highlights the thoughtful planning behind a Walter White design. The plan shows, through a series of arrows, the view lines from each section of the house, as well as the specific angles of the sun at different point in time during the year. This careful siting allowed for maximum views with a minimum of direct summer sun on the main living areas of the house.
