Panasonic created the Eco Ideas House to show the world how a symphony of their every-saving products working in concert can help consumers realize a zero CO2-emissions home, and live a more enriched lifestyle. The modern abode stands right next to the company’s Tokyo center and has a total floor area of 136.9 sq. meters (the national average home size in Japan).

Upon stepping into the home, we noticed immediately how bright and airy it was. Our tour guide explained to us that one of the main principles of the design was using nature’s blessings to their fullest potential. By making the most of natural wind and breezes via a product called the Wind Passage Tower S, which takes cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter from beneath the floor to ventilate and regulate the temperature of the living room, Panasonic was able to keep the energy needed to cool and heat the space down significantly.
