Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
A team of architects led by Stephen Kanner has completed an eco friendly house design in California, USA. Occupying an area of 3,300 square feet, the house is constructed from environmentally-friendly and recycled materials and designed to minimize energy consumption.
Facing the beautiful Pacific Coast, the house really maximize the force of nature by using the sea-breeze for air conditioning agent and also the abundant solar energy for conventional energy needs. Equipped with solar panels that produce ample energy and natural ventilation options, it sports spacious interiors with contemporary design and relies on a very efficient base for all its insulation and heating needs during nights.
Ground-level concrete floors act as heat sinks, pulling in the Sun’s energy during the day and releasing it at night. They also provide radiant heating, making use of water heated on the roof.
The inexpensive scratched-plaster exterior is painted an earthy terra cotta color to provide a natural texture that smoothes the house’s introduction to its environment. The color is inspired by the hue of an African soil the architect found in West Africa.
It’s a good lesson. It’s simple, stylish and sustainable architecture.
