The E.D.G.E. home features a simple footprint with a fully-integrated design that fits a lot of living space into a compact package. The glass on both sides creates a sense of transparency, projecting the living space outwards beyond the home’s walls. A sleek set of furniture runs the gamut from a brilliant transforming table to a bed, and bench. Rather than building a room around the furniture, the furniture is built around the room.

The home’s exterior is an exercise in restraint– with the louvers closed, the home takes on a monolithic form. With the louvers open, it becomes a balance of glass and screened walls. This video takes a look inside this remarkable house.
