ZERO SMART BEAUTIFUL HOUSE is an energetically self sufficient building system. It consists of a segmented, pre-manufactured sphere. Embedded in a landscape, it offers a technically advanced and yet poetic living environment, which adapts effortlessly to different uses. The enveloping geometry of the building places the inhabitants at its centre -- whether as a residential house, an office or an artist‘s workshop.
The shape of the sphere archetypically signifies perfection and wholeness -- however, with a twist: The ideal for the design of the ZERO SMART BEAUTIFUL HOUSE consists of technical perfection, sustainable design and a sensual living atmosphere. This holds at all levels of the building: geothermal air conditioning provides a pleasant room climate in a environmental friendly way. An additional roof is made of solar panels and supplies both protection and energy -- and simultaneously complements the design of enveloping layers. Step inside the building and you experience a feeling of security: The landscape embeds the sphere, and the roof provides comforting protection, while the glass segments of the shell create inspiring views. The play of incident light, ever-changing shadows and reflections of sunlight visually connect the interior with the exterior and offers diverse and fascinating lighting moods. This design bridges the gap between nature and technology - defining the distinctive aesthetics of our ZERO SMART BEAUTIFUL HOUSE.
