Solar Decathlon 2013: Vienna University of Technology claims top prize

The team’s simple, smart and sustainable LISI (Living inspired by sustainable innovation) house successfully demonstrated that it blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency 

Features

  • Renewable and eco-friendly construction and insulation materials made of timber are easily transported and provide indoor climate comfort and carbon-neutrality.
  • Changeable architectural elements create a variety of sensory conditions—closing to form a protective cocoon for occupants and opening to allow them to expand their space.
  • Two patios create a balance between interior and exterior and public and semi-public spaces.
  • The passive solar design, combined with an automated screen and awning system, provides shade to keep the living spaces cool and comfortable.
  • A patio herb garden draws water from a rainwater reservoir.
  • Generous storage, completely integrated into the walls, frees the primary indoor space from clutter.
