Designer Archiblox has recently come out with what they describe as “The worlds first Carbon Positive House”, meaning that it generates more energy than it uses. Archiblox is quoted stating “it is expected to offer the same environmental benefits as 6,095 native Australian trees.”

The following are images and quotes from the designer as to the nature of the structure and how it works!

“The house’s large, double-glazed windows are used to bring sunlight and warmth into the structure in the winter. Sliding walls of vertical planters act as shading devices in the summer.”

There are two zones in the house. One side, which the architects refer to as the “buffer zone,” faces north, capturing the sunlight in the winter and pulling it into the house. In the summer, it traps the harsh sun so less gets into the living space. Edible planters adorn the wall.

The houses uses sustainably-sourced materials with formaldehyde- and VOC-free finishes.

In-ground tubes also help with ventilation, pulling cool air through the house from the south side.

An airtight building envelop helps naturally insulate the structure. The appliances in the house are energy-efficient, and use greywater recycling.

The garden walls also wrap over the roof of the structure to further insulate the home and act as a living roof.
