Epi-Phyte Lab’s Hsu House

Categories: Architecture + Interiors

At 2200 square feet, The Hsu House in Danby, New York by Epi-Phyte Lab, is awesome not just because it looks like a wonderful stripey modern structure, but because it was designed using passive solar principles.

The result being a fairly inexpensive and energy efficient home for the young family that lives there. With a fun-to-say bifurcating monopitch roof, there are three stories and lots of living and playing space.

The awesome-to-look-at cast-in-place concrete heat sink mass wall stores sensible heat and allows light to play around it. More on Epi-Phyte Lab’s website.
