Everybody wants positive energy! This modest house has become a small power plant. Besides the energy needed to heat the house and to provide it of the necessary power, enough energy remains to recharge an electric car and also to illuminate the houses of some neighbors. The design shows that the facilities to achieve this have great aesthetic value. Thick insulated walls provide a robust understated look, the sharp lined shiny roof ensures a tight termination of the volume and solar blinds on the south and west provide a powerful lining. All the areas in need for a lot of light and heat are oriented on the sunny side. This maximizes the light and the heat advantage of the sun. The integrated solar blinds and screens holds out the sun in the warmer period. These sun blocking facilities have become an essential part of the design. The assignment to create a zero energy house has become an important design principle and has contributed to the aesthetics of the building.
