This dynamic home is designed according to the specific requirements of the client. It is firmly supported by a large central pillar. The house also features a storage tank used to drain rainfall water for non-potable usages.

Other than providing views of the natural scenery, the rotation is used to provide the best orientation for the solar panels which are placed on the roof of the house.Also, heat pumps and a solar thermal system help with producing the needed energy to run the house.
