VIRTUe, a student team from the Technical University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands, has come up with a sustainable house model to transform urban living. Dubbed Ripple, the new self-sufficient house model aims at reducing the carbon footprint while encouraging homeowners to adapt to eco-friendly living in the future.
The main component of this sustainable house is wood. This house comes integrated with solar panels that generate hot water and electricity. You can further combine this housing unit with other units to form a whole new block. The lightweight structure of this building makes it easy to install on the existing building’s top.
