Snøhetta's Latest Project is a Slanted, Eco-Friendly Oasis

The latest from international architecture office Snøhetta comes in the form of a very stylish, extremely eco-friendly collaboration with the Research Center on Zero Emission Buildings, who hoped to build a home that could "serve as an example for ecologically conscious design" that produces more energy than it takes in. Called the ZEB Pilot House, the renderings show a gorgeously strange single-family home cited for Ringdalskogen, Norway, with a steep, metal-clad roof that almost looks like an entire room has been sliced out of the home and flipped on its side. Next to the angular, highly slanted home, there's a private, interior courtyard with a solar-heated outdoor swimming pool and shower, and a sunny area designated for fruit trees and vegetable gardens "to provide small-scale food production." Should all that not sound sufficiently super-green, all of the various materials used during the construction process—which is said to wrap up this September—are guaranteed zero emission.
