Cascading Creek House was designed by Bercy Chen Studio and is located in  rural Texas, USA. One of the most striking elements of the project’s architecture is the roof, especially designed to collect rainwater. More sustainable features of this home include photo-voltaic and solar hot-water panels. According to the architects, “the water, electricity and heat which are harvested on the roof tie into an extensive climate conditioning system which utilizes water source heat pumps and radiant loops to supply both the heating and cooling for the residence. The climate system is connected to geothermal ground loops as well as pools and water features thereby establishing a system of heat exchange which minimizes reliance on electricity or gas. Each wing of the house terminates with the roof cantilevered from a single column that frees up the exterior walls to be fully glazed, flooding the tall and open volume of the living room with daylight and offering generous views of the pool deck and the wooded silhouettes of the Texas Hill Country beyond“. All these sustainable features were integrated in a way that does not compromise the modern appearance of the residence. If you find this hard to believe, just have a look below!
