Malibu 5: A dazzling home brimming with solar goodness

malibu 5 modern home 1 Malibu 5: A dazzling home brimming with solar goodness

Designed by a team of architects led by Stephen Kanner, the Malibu 5 home is a beautiful example of blending shapes with sustainable and eco-friendly technology. Facing the beautiful Pacific Coast, the home is designed to reduce energy consumption by using the sea-breeze for natural cooling and solar energy for conventional energy needs. Equipped with solar panels that produce ample energy and natural ventilation options, it sports spacious interiors with contemporary design and relies on a very efficient base for all its insulation and heating needs during nights. It’s a good lesson. It’s simple, stylish and sustainable architecture. – via

    I recently began building my own solar panels – I used some video guides I found and it’s working out fantastic!
