Revelations Architect’s the E.D.G.E’ is a response to the dramatic increase in average house size in America. Architect  William Yudchitz proposes a return to the bare necessities of “living, eating, bathing, sleeping and communal fellowshipping,” as a foundation for a new approach to house sizes.

The E.D.G.E project responds to ecological and economic influences. A modular approach to the essential components of living and the use of transforming furniture maximize the use of space within the 340 sq metre house.

The house also harnesses important environmentally sound energy principles with heating provided by a geothermal heat pump and maintained via kinetic insulating doors.
