With the growing responsibility to save the Earth, real estate developers are thinking outside the box to create solutions to housing problems. Eco-friendly homes have become fashionable in recent years. These homes, which greatly reduce the carbon footprint, are very popular with buyers. Let’s take a look at some of the greenest buildings in the world.
Plantation of Athena Marie
The Athena Marie plantation is located on North Hutchinson Island, Florida. At 45,760 square feet, it is the largest green house in the United States. Athena Marie Plantation is the first apartment in the United States to have an electric wind turbine on the roof. It is also the first home in Florida to use 100% renewable energy.
The belfry of the Belvedere
This house has everything a sustainable building needs: insulated roof, solar cells, high efficiency boiler, etc. The house is built entirely from recycled materials and anyone who thinks greenhouses lack a fine design will change their mind after seeing the Belvedere Bellwether.
Built in 2009 by Frank McKinney, Acqua Liana measures 15,000 square feet. Home purification systems clean the indoor air. To lower the temperature, the apartment features numerous waterfalls, reflective ponds and renewable wood. The house also boasts a special system that collects and recycles run-off water from the roof.
House of the forest
Woodland Home is in Wales. Built with natural materials such as stone, mud and straw, the house has some fun eco-friendly features. A composite toilet, solar panels for energy and natural air cooling are some of the hallmarks of this home.
The Houl Residence
The Houl Residence in Scotland is one of the greenest houses on the planet. The house aims for nearly zero carbon dioxide emissions and has a high level of insulation. Completed in 2009, the house is truly exceptional and ecological.
The dome house
Built by Japan Dome Housing Co. Ltd, the house uses expanded polystyrene as a building material. Expanded polystyrene provides excellent thermal insulation. The domed shape of the house allows for free circulation of air, which greatly reduces air conditioning costs. The amazing energy saving building provides a comfortable living space and does not rust easily.
Created from the ruins of a mill, Ruin Reborn boasts solar panels and a wood-burning stove with a built-in kettle. House managers have strategically placed windows to make the most of natural light. Upon seeing the house, no one can tell that the property in southwestern France was once an old mill in complete disrepair.
Handcrafted by Artists
There are so many scam websites out there that “sell” reborns dolls and countless other stores such as eBay and Amazon, that sell illegal copies of sculpts. DO NOT buy these! If you love reborns and want to continue to see these works of art, you need to purchase direct from trusted artists and ensure they are authentic kits!
When you purchase a reborn from Best Reborns, you will always be purchasing an authentic sculpt sourced from trusted dealers only. In doing so, we are supporting the very talented sculptors who make it possible for reborn artists, like us, to create these works of art, that you love so much.
