Hovercraft House

Albuquerque, New Mexico

This Bart Prince design was built in 1984 as the Albuquerque native architect's residence and studio. Its top-level sleeping quarters feature curved, south-facing glazing for passive solar benefits. The lower-level studio and workspace were built into the ground, behind an earth berm, for noise reduction and privacy. The 1990 addition of a masonry tower provided added space for a library and storage.
