Unique Triangular Edgeland House

More and more innovative architectural designs started to transform into reality, bringing a unique touch to the environment.

The unique triangular Edgeland House is located on a rehabilitated brownfield site in Austin, Texas.

Designed by Bercy Chen Studio, the home is an earth-sheltered home, that means it’s built into the earth being covered with thick layer of sod.

This design has its advantages, keeping you warm during winter and cool during summer, but that’s also due to its thermal mass and insulation added to it.

So let’s take the tour of this Unique Triangular Edgeland House and admire its ingenious architecture.

The home isn’t only an amazing architectural project on the outside and inside, but it also takes into consideration the environment and the local plant life.

“The mechanical system combines: hydronic heating and a green roof for maximum energy efficiency.”

The Edgeland is a concrete, steel and glass house that fits perfect in the landscape, and the essence of the project is associated with the Native American Pit Houses, the roof being influenced by the art of origami.
