This energy neutral home in the Netherlands was built according to Cradle to Cradle principles, meaning that all the materials will either decompose or be used in another product after deconstruction. The work of Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimoro was a major inspiration for the design, so the Japanese tradition of including living or natural elements, like the enormous tree trunk on iron rods that "carries" the second floor, is a primary part of the home's construction.
