Cascading Creek House Harvests Rainwater and Solar Energy in Central Texas

Comments Off on Cascading Creek House Harvests Rainwater and Solar Energy in Central Texas

The Cascading Creek House by Bercy Chen Studio was conceived less as a house and more as an outgrowth of the limestone aquifers in the geography of Central Texas. The roof is configured so as to create a natural basin for the collection of rainwater , not unlike the vernal pools found in the outcroppings of the Texas Hill Country. These basins harness additional natural flows through the use of photovoltaic and solar hot water panels . 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 + Bercy Chen Studio The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
