Given its versatile and affordable design, the Soleta zeroEnergy One can be used as a tiny home, an office, or as a vacation home. It is constructed of all natural materials sourced locally, including glue laminated wood for the structure and wood shingles for the roof. Instead of solid walls, FITS used insulated glass to create a distinct relationship between nature and the interior while also providing natural light and ventilation. Additional ventilation is “forced” in and coupled with a heat recovery system.

At just 48 square meters (not counting a 9 sqm loft and 22 sqm terrace), Soleta zeroEnergy One is compact, but so well orchestrated that there is no sense of claustrophobia. Powered by whatever renewable energy sources are available (this is a concept home), 45 percent energy efficiency is achieved with a smart energy, climate and ventilation monitoring and managing system (KNX) that can be controlled remotely with an iPhone or similar devices. In-floor heating can be combined with other technologies for additional heating. Like the Romanian solar decathlon prefab at Madrid, this home steals the show.
