Called the Earthship Lollipop, this delightful home by Khai Foo & Elise Young of Solus Decor and Eastside Design has a rammed-icing English Mint wall with high cocoa-mass qualities to mitigate sweet-loss. The design was submitted to a competition to raise funds for Architecture for Humanity.
PREFAB GINGERBREAD HOME
Hometta‘s Prefab Gingerbread House is by far one of the coolies icing-glazed houses on the block. An immaculate design with a sloping roof and a modular formation, we can imagine this baby evolving from an edible construction to an ultra-efficient prefabricated design.
BUSBY PERKINS & WILL GREEN-ROOFED GINGERBREAD HOUSE
Busby Perkins & Will‘s green-roofed gingerbread home melds perfectly with the landscape and juts out at one end like a natural extension of its sweet sloping site. A cool rectilinear design, green roof, and minimal color palette makes this house especially delectable.
LEED PLATINUM GINGERBREAD HOUSE
HOK, one of our favorite eco-minded firms, decked the halls of this gingerbread home with so many sustainable systems it even achieved LEED Platinum! Featuring Hershey’s Chocolate solar panels, gumdrop wind turbines and black licorice rainwater collectors, we’re pretty sure they’ve set a precedent with this scrumptious home.
Nick Milkovich Architects‘ Sugar Shack is definitely a stunner that draws upon the style of various modern greats. A simple sugar abode sits atop an inclined site of gingerbread and icing, affording amazing views from within its near transparent and tasty space. Hopefully those surrounding sugar trees will keep things cool inside when the sun shines bright.
