The future in houses design is to have many systems perfect adapted at climate and to have control with fewer resources and complete green, in this way exist in the last time more concepts to put in our life this new and revolutionary concepts, The Eco House is one very good example in this sens. In forward is the description by the architect from source site:
Contemporary design and building responds to seasonal variations primarily through artificial systems of climate control. The Eco House transforms structurally to suit environments in which cold winters and hot summers are the norm. The pitched, A-frame roof assists the conservation of heat, deflects light and eases snow run-off in the winter months while the flat roof and upper band of ventilation creates a wind tunnel circulating breezes in the summer heat.
