With the growing responsibility to save the Earth, real estate developers are thinking outside the box to create solutions to housing problems. Eco-friendly homes have become fashionable in recent years. These homes, which greatly reduce the carbon footprint, are very popular with buyers. Let’s look at some of the most environmentally friendly buildings in the world.
Athena Marie Plantation
Athena Marie Plantation is on North Hutchinson Island in Florida. Measuring 45,760 square feet, it is the largest green house in the United States. Athena Marie Plantation is the first apartment in the United States to have an electric wind turbine on its roof. It is also the first home in Florida to use 100% renewable energy.
The Belvedere Bellwether
This house has everything a sustainable building needs – insulated roof, solar cells, high efficiency boiler, etc. The house is built entirely from recycled materials and anyone who finds the greenhouses lacking in exquisite design will change their minds after seeing the Belvedere Bellwether.
The water Liana
Built in 2009 by Frank McKinney, Acqua Liana measures 15,000 square feet. Home purification systems purify indoor air. To bring down the temperature, the apartment has many waterfalls, reflecting pools and renewable wood. The house also has a special system that collects and recycles runoff from the roof.
house in the woods
Woodland Home is in Wales. Built with natural materials like stone, mud and straw, the house has fun eco-friendly features. A composite toilet, solar panels for energy and natural air cooling are some of the features of this house.
The Houl Residence
The Houl Residence in Scotland is one of the greenest homes on the planet. The house aims for almost zero carbon dioxide emissions and has a high level of insulation. Completed in 2009, the house is truly exceptional and environmentally friendly.
The Dome House
Built by Japan Dome Housing Co. Ltd, the house uses expanded polystyrene as its construction material. Expanded polystyrene provides excellent thermal insulation. The domed shape of the house allows free circulation of air, which significantly reduces air conditioning costs. The amazing energy-efficient building provides a comfortable living space and is not easy to rust.
The ruin is reborn
Created from the ruins of a mill, Ruin Reborn boasts solar panels and a wood-burning stove with a built-in water heater. Home makers have strategically placed windows to make the most of natural light. After seeing the house, no one can say that the property in the southwest of France was once an old mill in complete ruin.
