The name of of the residence is derived from its functionality: the project is a complex mechanism able to store solar heat, like a giant sunflower.

Αccording to the architects, Sunflower home is “an addition of small units that each frame a differentiated view, and it is within the transition from one unit to the other where the totality of the panoramic view is comprehended. The composition of the volumes responds to the generation of a rear patio that enables the sun radiation into the living room, to heat the hole home up. From the interior the experience of the home is continuous: from any point of the home one feels closely related to the immediate milieu by incorporating one or other view into the numerous spaces.” Sheltering the residence from the powerful winds of the area was one of the main challenges of the design.
