A solar powered, passively cooled, rainwater-collecting house for a large family getaway in the US Virgin Islands. The complex is a designed with a crinkled roof system shaped like waves in the sea.
The carefully orchestrated double roof system allows for optimized collection of rainwater to fill a cistern, solar energy, and wind that powers passive cooling via an array of architectural snorkels.
The complex cascades down the hillside towards the ocean, maintaining views for all bedrooms. Three existing structures on the site have been integrated into the complex, providing sentimental value and auxiliary services.
