This project investigates how a climate researcher, an architect and an urban planner can live and work together in a sustainable way in the plains of Texas. The project’s triangulated skin became a language for furnishing and allowing sunlight and fresh air to circulate the space. The texas sun radiates heat into spaces very quickly, so this project thought of the skin as a reflective surface that could not ony reflect light and heat off the surface, but also open some panels to let air in to cool down the space through stack ventillation. Finally, the spaces are organized by a triangulated sleeping surface below ground that uses the cool mass of the ground to keep the sleeping space comfortable while the living space dialogues with the ground plane and work space is elevated as a metaphor for higher levels of thinking.
