Erin Vali from Ulterior Mode  has recently been getting all sorts of attention for an art-studio house  he recently designed in the Catskills (profiled in The New York Times ). Just as interesting, however, is his concept design for an eco-friendly, solar-powered four bedroom prefab that uses passive heating and cooling techniques to further minimize its energy footprint. Vali utilizes all sorts of clever methods to get the most out the design, Vital House’s ventilation is controlled through a system of louvers and fans which can create drafts when you’d like to cool things down and that can recycle heat when temperatures fall.
