Snøhetta’s Tilted Zero Energy House
Do you know what a ‘plus house’ is? It’s a house that produces more energy than it needs. ZEB and Snøhetta joined forces to create this tilted zero energy house to see if it could actually be done.
Conclusion? Yes it can. The Sloped roof is clad in photovoltaic panels. These geometrical shapes - for instance - allow the owner to drive his electric car the whole year round. The house has been nominated for The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.
