Hightower / Prystup Residence
A retired doctor desired a underground solar house. BB Archer produced the designed, and Bill Archer producted the engineering. It is comprised of 6400 square feet. The above ground portion is clad in California redwood siding. The underground portion is all concrete, steel, and glass with a large brick chimney type obelisk.
A Livingston, Alabama entrepreneur restored the house 20 years after its original design and subsequently gave it to the University of West Alabama.
