Architecture

31 JAN 2013

 

The Caterpillar House is a modern farmhouse, located in California, USA.

Due to the owners love for single-story houses, the project united beauty, contemporary styling, modern and sustainable strategies.

The land that was excavated to open the site that  was used to build walls that act as a thermal mass, regulating the temperature of the day and night. The large windows facing the south collect natural light. Photo-voltaic panels generate all the energy needed for the home.

The project is the work of the Feldman Architecture office.
