Located on the east end of Long Island in East Hampton, New York on three forested acres, the Arc House is a private modern residence designed with a stunning combination of glass, steel, stone and wood. With over half of the 6,400 square foot structure partially buried, the subterranean construction home was prescribed by the owners who desired a pared-down aesthetic. Designed by Maziar Behrooz Architect and inspired by an airplane hangar, the roof and side walls of the upper level are constructed with a 60-foot by 20-foot self-supporting corrugated steel arch. Green features include geothermal heating, a rainwater collection system on both ends of the arch, and a vegetated roof on the four-car garage from Green Living Technologies International (GLTi). The green roof acts in a manner such as an infinity pool: the vegetation blends into the background providing a seamless appearance. This project was a culminating activity by students from The Bronx Discovery High at the GLTi beta classroom as part of a four year program that implemented the company’s’ green roofs and walls to enhance learning. The students practiced the skills they learned in the classroom and installed the green roof — while earning a living wage. The Arc House is currently on the market for .95M and was just featured on March 9, 2014 on the Travel Channel’s Extreme Vacation Homes.

    I want to do one of these metal arc "quonset hut" for a house, this is the one that really caught my eye because the arc is just right so it's a smooth flowing curve and not just a big half circle like most.
