sod hut

Tobias Weiss and Gernot Reisenhofer have designed a cool series of terraced hillside homes that save energy heating and cooling by integrating into the landscape. Nestled against the surrounding hills, each green-roofed apartment takes advantage of passive solar design, rainwater recycling, and photovoltaic sunshades. Not really a new idea (even the rendering looks retro) but it does look like it has a nice neighborhood feel.
