Craig Thompson Architecture | green hole home

green hole home

regenerative green home idea

2013

the design theme is how the graphic representation of particle-accelerator atom splitting & the pulsation of a black hole can be used as a formal organization for how to capture, filter, & recycle rainwater into a building.

 

roofs slope down towards the center of the structure, capturing rainwater

roofs slope up & outward to maximize light & view into the interior

rainwater flows down the central plexiglass column & then out towards the exterior through slots in the floors, re-using it for irrigation and slowly filtering contaminants back into the landscape
