London's 3 Meter Micro Cube House Produces More Energy than it Consumes
A full-sized shower and composting toilet are located across from the kitchen. The funky-looking pedestal in the middle is actually a step up to the nearly queen-sized bed set above the living room.
The interior is finished with FSC-certified birch plywood, and English Sweet Chestnut clads the cubed exterior. The structure also incorporates a range of other green materials — cork flooring, wool fabric, sustainable wood, and triple-paned windows.
The building is capped with a shed roof and a 1.48 kW solar array which, although modest in size, still makes enough energy to sell back to the grid. In fact, the system will gets 1,000 pounds back each year for 20 years as part of Britain’s feedback tariff program.
As a professor in Psychology, Dr. Page studies “deal(ing) with problems that are as much psychological problems as they are technological problems… if we are to mitigate the problems of climate change.”
