Gallery: E.D.G.E Home Beautifully Balances Form with Function

 
Just like the Lumenhaus, the home features sliding panels that cover and secure the home. Heat gain is dramatically reduced in summer, but the panels still let in a breeze that keeps the home cool. The adaptive wall system is a technique we anticipate to see more frequently in the future.

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.
