Clarum is thrilled to announce the completion of our high-performance Menlo Park Modern Home!
High-efficiency framing. Super-insulation. Solar power. SIPS. All blended into modern beauty. (Go to our gallery to view the entire set of photos of this modern home.)
This ultra-modern, two-story 2,800 square-foot home is located in a well-established Menlo Park neighborhood. And, it features all of the components of the Clarum Home passive design.
The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home demonstrates all our standard high-performing components, including a heat-recovery ventilator that’ll keep the interior air remarkably fresh and healthy to breathe.
Built with a holistic approach, this home uses 90% less energy compared to traditional building approaches. It is heated primarily by sunlight and internal heat generated by people and appliances. The design avoids excessive heat gain and cooling through careful shading and window orientation, triple-pane windows, and structural insulated panels (SIPs) to provide maximum air tightness.

Clarum built this modern home to be healthy, comfortable, and stylish. Because it’s not just about efficiency – it’s also about how you feel each day you live there. Fresh air, plenty of natural light, and a spacious layout combine for a lifestyle that’s both eco-friendly and enlivening.
Its inviting floor plan and sleek interior design include a gourmet kitchen, large master suite, office, pantry, and mud room. It sits on a 6,250 square-foot lot that’s naturally landscaped with low-water, drought-tolerant plants. High performance landscaping results in huge benefits for more than the environment – it helps you spend less money and less effort on a gorgeous, natural aesthetic.
The Menlo Park Modern Home is another example of the Clarum Homes mission: Transforming the way you live. We are committed to building places of beauty, comfort and quality that are designed and constructed for people who want to practice an environmentally responsible lifestyle, with a lighter carbon footprint without sacrificing style and luxury.
