This sweet home , nestled under green roof covered with over 40 native species of plants and wildflowers , is located in Austin , Texas . Bercy Chen Studio found inspiration in the Native American Pit House , which is one of the oldest housing typologies in North America , to create in collaboration with Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center this modern house , named “Edgeland House”. The unique here is that it provides to the inhabitants thermal comfort throughout the year by using the earth’s mass : cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter . Straight dream house especially for someone like me , who loves the balance between nature and modern way of living and the heat , especially during the winter season !
