Amsterdam-based studio Tjep have designed a self-sustaining, solar powered house called Isolée. The eco-house concept combines intelligent technology with elegant sophistication. The Isolée house runs on solar energy collected via solar panels fitted on its rooftop. Here is a description from the designers, “This house is a new architectural design delivering an ecologically friendly retreat from the modern world. Combining intelligent technology with elegant sophistication, this design creates a habitat that barely impacts its environment.
With massive opening shutters spanning the length of the building, an intelligent heating system integrated within the structure of the house and topped by a solar tree, this home ensures minimal fuel reliance. Applying a minimalized product design ethos, Isolée is anchored to the landscape on just four points, as would a cabinet.
The Isolée creates permanence, but with an engineered beauty that is aesthetically inspired by nature and harmonizes mankind’s relationship with the world.”
