If you love eco-friendly designs, then you’ll love learning all about passive houses. According to Wikipedia, a passive house is, “a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.” This means that a passive house requires very little energy to heat and cool. Since being introduced in the late 1980s, passive house designs have become very diverse, and it’s not really possible to tell whether or not a home is a passive house just by looking at it. Whoever said being eco-friendly couldn’t also be cool must’ve never seen houses like these. Take a look at 10 of the most amazing passive house designs.
