Edgeland House sits on a rehabilitated brownfield site, an effort to heal the scars of the site's industrial past. It raises awareness about the diminishing natural landscape by creating a balance between the industrial zone on one side and the river on the other. The home's design by Bercy Chen Studio is a modern re-interpretation of the Native America Pit House, with a 7-foot excavation and a green roof which help it stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It also utilizes a hydronic HVAC system for maximum energy efficiency. The roof is covered in over 40 species of native plants and wildflowers to help protect the local ecosystem.
