Australia House, Futuristic House by Xenian

June 30, 2009 By: Category: Home Design

This futuristic house by Xenian is on display in Sydney, Australia, at a public exhibition for sustainable house design. This environmentally responsible design features modern technologies that trend towards a life of consuming less, wasting less, and relying on alternate forms of energy to create comfort at home. Aptly named the “House of the Future” this modern design was prefabricated – a popular construction method for the eco-conscious requiring less resources and resulting in less site disruption during development. The warm, wooden design boasts low-power LED lighting which gives the home an ultra-modern appeal. Green features include a rainwater harvesting system, passive ventilation, and solar cells embedded in the expansive panes of glass making up the front facade. Outside, a sustainable garden completes the modern residential design.
