This house is amazing!
in a continued effort to produce ecologically conscious structures, the research center on zero emission buildings and design office snøhetta partnered up to develop a pilot house near the norwegian town of larvik. now completed, the dwelling serves as a platform for assisting knowledge of ‘plus houses’, which produce more energy than they use. the demonstration residence’s distinctive tilt towards the southeast instigates its environmental performance, with a sloped roof surface clad in photovoltaic panels. the solar energy collectors are complemented by geothermal wells on the site, resulting in a total gain able to service the house with surplus to power an electric car year-round.
