Net-zero energy house
This is probably one of the most featured and green houses we reviewed yet. We used to think of a contemporary house as of the one with unusual architecture and crazy amount of swimming pools. Well this house is about the latest technology serving to create a warm and inspiring home for a single family. Active and passive eco technologies include the thickly insulated multi-layer envelope, high efficiency fiberglass windows, LED lighting, Hunter Douglas automatic windows coverings and the Eco Dashboard real-time monitoring system. Apart from the regular living areas the house has a home gym, huge swimming pool and a two-car garage; moreover the house is already equipped by two electric vehicles. A bunch of solar panels on the roof produce 17kW of energy, which is enough to power up both the house and the electro mobiles.
