The ‘Home Tree’ concept was born from the house’s incorporated technology and Bignatov Studios‘ organic design approach. The project takes advantage of its site by maximizing solar exposure, incorporating a solar-thermal system, and incorporating lots of custom windows. A ground-source heat pump heats and cools the home efficiently by drawing on six deep wells. The New York-based design team was present throughout the home’s construction to help solve problems and refine the design.

    This is ingenious, and quite good to look at. Imagine if these kinds of buildings are the norm in the near future.
