This might be the home of my dreams. What you see above is the Edgeland House which was designed by Bercy Chen Architecture Studio, a small firm based in Austin, Texas founded by Thomas Bercy and Calvin Chen. The design of the houe was inspired by the Native American pit-house, a style of residence which is partially buried under the earth. The benefit of this is that the house will stay warmer in cold months and cooler in warm months. It also looks freaking cool.

The intense angles of the home bring such a unique and bold look to the home. To me it almost looks like an alien spacecraft has crash landed into the hill, and slowly nature has started to grow over it. The immense vaulted ceilings also allow for a lot of light to shine in, bringing the idea of nature in the space even further. Lastly, the infinity pool at the end of the space is incredible. How could you not want to swim in that?
