With changing environmental conditions, architecture too will have to go through a major transformation to sustain humanity in a world where energy doesn’t come cheap. Working on the same lines architects from FIXd Architecture have come up with Mo Ventus – a conceptual luxury house with transformable shape and zero energy credentials that can be built anywhere in the world.
The self-sustaining house addresses four needs that include a transformable shape, renewable energy generation, openness to the surround environment and an additional home-office space for the not-so-faint-hearted. The facades and delicate glass elements of the house can be opened or closed according to the current climatic conditions.
Moreover, the house employs a one-of-its-kind concave shape forming a wind tunnel that is capable of harnessing up to five times the wind’s natural speed and hence increases the amount of wind energy generated. Coupled with a photovoltaic array and on-site hydrogen fuel cells, the dwelling generates all the energy it needs and hence can be built anywhere in the world.
The environmentally friendly home lets you connect with nature and blends into the natural surroundings by offering homeowners 180-degrees views of the natural landscape surrounding them. The one-of-its-kind green home also includes a home-office space, which is a cantilevered space that is separated from the main housing area. Designboom reports that being modular in nature, the design allows for a wide range of programs and additions to accommodate a family of any size.
