Epiphyte Lab’s Stripy Hsu House Is Designed to Mimic the Sky and Seasons

The Hsu House’s story began when Epiphyte Lab's Kevin Pratt was teaching with his studio co-founder Dana Cupkova at Cornell University. The pair were conducting a lecture and in the middle of class they noticed that a stranger had dropped in. The man sitting in the audience was Tony Hsu, a soon-to-be client that had been planning an ambitious, ultra-sustainable home but was in need some assistance.
