Watch This Sustainable Mansion Shift Its Layout Based on the Weather

New, 2 comments

The renderings for Ventus House have been floating around for years now, but now for the first time we can see the proposed adaptable luxury mansion in action. Designed by architect Todd Fix, Ventus would be built with integrated wind turbines (the unique shape of the house is meant to harness wind energy), photovoltaic arrays, and fuel cells, making the whole thing completely sustainable. And, most notably for the sake of enjoying these animations, a jutting out office/studio space that can shift based on the weather, providing variations and control over day-lighting, heat gain, openness, and privacy.
