Award Entry

A.H.ARCHITECTS demonstrate their work through their energy generating house 

This house was designed for a family in Kitakanto area, one hour drive from Tokyo.

The client wanted to live comfortably, but with less energy.

With groundwater basin and ventilation cooling systems as well as solar control, the house is designed to remain comfortable throughout the year while using as little energy as possible.

Energy loss was reduced by careful planning of a north facing courtyard, window placement and the length of the eaves, cooling from the basin and a heat reservoir foundation which minimizes energy consumption, and with the addition of solar power this home produces energy.
