Located in Austin, Texas,  the Edgeland House is a contemporary dwelling buried under an insulative green roof. It’s a re-interpretation of the Native American Pit House – typically sunken, it takes advantage of the earth’s mass to maintain thermal comfort throughout the year.

Both visually and functionally,  the Edgeland Residence touches on architecture as site‐specific installation art and as an extension of the landscape. The house is broken up into two separate pavilions, for the living and sleeping quarters, and requires direct contact with the outside elements to pass from one to the other. The property sets new standards for sustainability while providing great aesthetic qualities through its small footprint and integrated mechanical features.
