The Edgeland House

Designed by Bercy Chen Architecture and located in Austin, Texas is the Edgeland House. Referencing the native pit houses of North Americas earliest inhabitants, the Edgeland House features a semi-subterranean design that improves thermal efficiency while also giving the residence a striking appearance. The split design of the house divides the house between social and private areas and its strong, angular contrast nicely with the natural surroundings that ensconce the property. The icing on the cake is the courtyard area bisecting the two spaces and leading to an ourdoor pool.
