Green Acre Farm

A dome-shaped living roof forms the main entry/foyer of this eco-farm straw bale house.

The sun drenched covered veranda of the pool house is also covered by a colorful landscape.

An arbor full of wisteria vines form a vegetative bridge joining the two roofscapes together into one continuous ribbon of life.

Captured rainwater irrigates the vegetative roofs throughout the dry season.
