Energy Neutral Townhouse in Amsterdam

Energy Neutral Townhouse in Amsterdam

This modern home in Amsterdam was designed around the Cradle to Cradle principle of intelligent design. The townhome combines the latest green technologies with tried-and-true low tech design to be energy neutral.

FARO Architects designed the home to generate its own energy with wind turbines and heat hot water with roof-mounted solar heatpipes. Made almost entirely of wood, the home also features a large branch that honors the Japanese tradition of including living or natural elements in the design.
