Cottages at Fallingwater, Mill Run, Pa.

At night, the entryway to each cottage becomes a glowing beacon. Cordwood fills the south-facing wall of each cottage, acting as a thermal mass.

The six cottages include large porches to promote socializing among the residents.

Geothermal wells, passive solar design, and photovoltaic panels combine to conserve energy.

Green roofs are planted with local switchgrass.

Wood, copper, and glass serve as the project's dominant building materials.
