Enveloped in dense landscapes, the Winnwood House immerses itself in its natural surroundings from the inside out. The dwelling is located outside of Dallas and is situated adjacent to a conservation project funded by the Texas Parks & Wildlife and the US Dept. of Interior. Its unassuming black plaster exterior is planted with limbing Boston Ivy. Over time, the facade will be consumed by the vines and fade into its natural environment. In contrast, a bright, white interior creates an airy atmosphere on the interior. Large voids break up the monochromatic palette with views of the verdant scenery, including the neighboring conservation park. Equipped with a geothermal heat pump, roof-mounted solar array, and a rainwater harvesting system, the energy-positive residence has earned a LEED Platinum certification.
