Inspiring from the residence in Norway : ZEB Pilot house


ZEB Pilot house is an design completed by  Snøhetta,in collaboration with ZEB and Ootimera. This house is an innovative architecture project embedding a variety of sustainable
The building in Larvik, Norway has everything a single
family house needs, yet it is intended as a show-home for various
groundbreaking energy-efficient systems. But we can’t help feeling
intrigued by its original exterior, with an oblique dominant black
volume and sloping roof clad in solar panels. Have a look at the last

Architects believe , focus on carbon emissions associated with
building materials represents a new direction in the vital drive toward a
sustainable construction industry: “To achieve ZEB-OM classification
the project is required to document and verify a minimum of 100% CO2
offsetting. Renewable energy production via photovoltaic and
solar-thermal panels integrated in the building envelope enables
offsetting of carbon emissions generated by the burning of fossil fuels
in power stations. By offsetting in this manner we reduce emission of
other greenhouse gasses simultaneously.”

ZEB Pilot House in Norway is an
inspiring example of how architecture and sustainable technology
combine in raising living standards, as well as environmental
