8th Annual Energy All-Star Awards
Soheil Nakhshab has designed and built a 5,600-square-foot, canyon-side home for his family in Mission Hills with high standards of energy efficiency and sustainability. The two-story home incorporates natural ventilation, high-efficiency building materials, xeriscape landscaping and a solar energy system. The home is certified as LEED for Home Gold.
Modern Multi-Generational Green Living
I know, I know, another green home in California. Seems like half the releases we get lately are about some Californian completing a sustainable home. Well, this one just so happens to be the first LEED Gold home in San Diego. If that’s not special enough for you, check out the age range of the people living there 2 to 64. Long ago, I read somewhere the American family was fairly unique in the sense that it almost never included extended family. It was almost always exclusively the nuclear family. Well, times must be a changin’ because while it seems for us that we’ve been doing a lot of sustainable homes in California, I have noticed that most of the sustainable homes we’ve covered have had a senior suite of some kind. Have any studies ever been done about how much a nuclear family consumes versus an extended family? I mean, it seems like it would make sense that people would consume less if grandpa and grandma were living with them, but I could be wrong.
A Mid-Century Modern Home Shows How Going Green be Luxurious
If you travel around Mission Hills you will quickly realize that the community is quite diverse, in terms of architecture, style, history and tastes. Because of the interests, attitudes and backgrounds of the residents, it’s easy to understand the reason for this diversity. Mission Hills’ residents seek to identify themselves by the homes they live in.

Homer Delawie Revived
Nakhshab Development & Design has teamed up with Magnus Architects to restore a Mission Hills home built in 1965 by iconic mid-century modern architect Homer Delawie. Not only did they renovate and update the dwelling while preserving its original architectural design concepts and characteristics, they also incorporated those concepts into two new single-family homes—each 4,400 square feet—built alongside the Delawie residence. The trio of homes is a stunning display of midcentury design revived for 21st-century living.
Mid-century homes — especially those designed by prominent architects — continue to be a hot commodity in San Diego. If you manage to score one, though, you might get stuck with a lot of expensive renovations. Not so in Mission Hills, where mid-century style and modern convenience go hand-in-hand at Nakhshab Design & Development’s recently unveiled Revival properties.
