Hydrated Homesteads
The Water Cooled House Has a Natural Flow

I think I could see spending the rest of my summers in the Water Cooled House. It’s like having your own splash park right in your living room! Well, not exactly. A koi pond runs through the first and second levels of the home; you will notice that each of the halls that run parallel the pond are very long. This is to create maximum air flow to facilitate a natural cooling effect throughout the adjacent rooms.

The Water Cooled House uses no air conditioning and therefore saves a lot on energy costs. Besides the ecological value, the aesthetics are simply stunning. To have a koi pond fully integrated into each floor of the house might just be the coolest thing ever done to a home.
