Powered Living homes are designed to have a very close relationship
with our most powerful natural resource the sun.
These homes are solar powered. The polished concrete floor acts
as a huge heatstorage cell for radiant heat. It is capable of storing
the equivalent of 20kWh of electrical energy – or 20 oil heaters
burning continuously. Your home is also naturely passively ventilated
through the wonderfully tall central clerestory roof.
What this means is that these homes need no heating. Or cooling. As

here, they will maintain a constant warm internal temperature midwinter,
spring, summer, morning or night. Style and comfort working together...
