Aa House: Headquarters for Anthropocene Alliance + Private Residence
Situated in Micanopy, Florida, the Aa House embraces its natural and native Florida landscape. Heritage oaks, magnolias, cedar, citrus, and palm trees embrace the house and gardens. A large, low-slope metal roof gathers roof rainwater and directs it into an on-site pond and bird sanctuary, located just south of the residence. Rooftop solar arrays generate power for the residence. Below the roof, domestic spaces are organized around an extensive collection of art and literature.
