The home is a fairly simple cube with a no-nonsense facade that allows ample light to stream in through its 360 degree windows. Large overhangs help regulate the interior climate by providing shade when necessary. The second story contains the main living area with the kitchen, dining, and living room, all of which provide views of the expansive lawn and the farmland beyond. On the ground floor, which could be considered “underground” are utility and sleeping spaces. Cooling for the home is provided from well water, which is pumped up to the roof and then is used to water the lawn. The house’s connection with its surrounding natural environment is saved by blocking the view of the vehicles, incorporating daylight throughout the home and using water to cool the home.
