Zero-Carbon villa designed for sustainable living in Southern Spain


The Eco House, by Diseño Earle, is to be the first zero-carbon-footprint villa built in Southern Spain. The home is long and narrow to fit on the plot and is crowned with a unique, angled roof design that allows for solar panels to be installed for maximum exposure to the sun, and to allow air to pass over and cool the home. The design calls for extensive use of louvered glass panels to let plenty of natural light into the building while reducing heat. A geo-thermal system will be installed to provide both cooling and heating.
