Simple. Excellent. Smart. For the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013, newcomer Vienna University of Technology is designing a "house of the future."
Team Austria's architectural design provides interesting views inside and out that create a sense of living beyond the small dwelling. Its prefabricated, lightweight construction components can be combined in different ways to adapt to different needs. Almost all the construction materials will come from renewable or easily recyclable resources for sustainability before and after the house's lifecycle.
The Team Austria house will provide a healthy, comfortable, and enjoyable environment and generate at least enough energy to power the daily lives of its inhabitants, including their needs for mobility, heating and cooling, and warm water. Its simplicity, flexibility, and component availability make it an affordable housing option for almost everyone almost everywhere.
