We don’t know much about the future, but we all believe that green energy and computers will have a great impact in our homes. Some say that our lives will be powered by the sun and wind and everything in our places will be maintained by computers!! What do you think about that?
This is a real project thought by Karim Rahid that has an Eco friendly design. The Komb house has panel heated water, energy efficient appliances, reuse of pluvial water and low energy LED lighting Its materials, such as wood, metal, glass and solar panels can be reused. The inside of the house is divided into areas: play, eat, sleep and cleanse.
Architect Ted Givens, in collaboration with 10 Designs, sketched a house that’s able (in paper) to resist a tornado. How can it do that? I have to quote to explain: “ Hydraulic levers pull the Kevlar-coated house into the ground when high-velocity winds pass by. The high-tech structure’s roof, then locks so water and wind can’t enter.” This is the simplest resume of the thing. If this project comes to reality it could save many many people.
This is a concept house designed by Christopher Daniel. It’s thought specially for the desert. This prefabricated house can shape itself according to determined settings. It«s carbon shell reflects the heat from the sun. Constructed or not, these houses have one thing in common: they combine technology with the environment. These designs get the most out of materials and try to make them Eco friendly.
Located in Athens, Greece, this amazing looking house was designed by firm 314 Architecture Studio. It look was inspired in yachts and in water itself. This house collects geothermal energy.
This is a real house design by Portuguese architect Bernardo Rodrigues. This beautiful home is located in S. Michael ‘s island, in Azores.
