The modular design of LUMENHAUS allows it to grow with your family with the same efficient use of space as the single module; then, when the children move out the extra modules can be moved down the street to solve a budding new family's space needs
Curtains, sliding glass doors and the Eclipsis System (insulating panels and shutter shades) as well as photovoltaic panels installed
Materials and components used in the LUMENHAUS are based on the basic requirements of environmental conservation and energy use, as well as the longevity of each product.
Imagine waking up on a cold winter’s morning to light streaming in through your bedroom window and the smell of fresh coffee. The concrete floor is warm and your favorite music starts to play as you eat your breakfast. As you drive away the house automatically locks, the thermostat reduces and the insulation panels close as the house goes into hibernation until you return. Welcome to LUMENHAUS, the completely solar powered, open plan house that uses computer technology, flexible architectural design and energy efficiency to adapt to its owner’s changing needs as well as environmental conditions... and it recently won the 2010 Solar Decathlon Europe.
