Fuentesdesign Straw Bale House

Company Description

Fuentesdesign   Designer, Builder

Natural architecture and straw bale zero energy homes. Located on a historic family ranch alongside hundred year old buildings, this zero energy straw bale refuge redefines the concept of the western homestead in the contemporary context of sustainability. Solar hot water for in-floor radiant heat augments passive solar design. Photovoltaics provide power, while earth from the well drilling was used for interior plaster.
