This kind of alternative housing is designed as a completely self-powered capsule that could be placed on the roofs of buildings. It has an ultra-insulated shell and regenerative systems allow the Living Roof to exist largely off the grid.  Its sensuous form feed wind into mini-turbines at each end, while funneling rainwater to collectors.  Integrated photovoltaic cells also help to make the Living Roof one of the world’s greenest structures.

Internally, instead of dispersing activities horizontally, a functional ring vertically combines sleep, lounge and work areas. The house inhabitants can choose their desired mode and the ring rotates the appropriate module downwards, the house completely accommodates different types of activities within very small, and completely functional spaces.
