Environmentally Innovative Greek Holiday Home

If Lamborghini built houses they might look a little like this spectacular holiday home on the island of Rhodes in Greece. In reality this visualization is the brainchild of Hornung and Jacobi Architecture from Hamburg in Germany. Most notable for their profound environmental understanding, Hornung and Jacobi demonstrate its application to an exemplary standard, incorporating various eco techniques such as temperature regulation, through the use of lightweight building materials and harnessing the benefits of hydro-evaporation from the pool that spans the length of the master's quarters. This fittingly modern build also facilitates a chimney effect that flows through integrated cable ducts from the base plate in the garage to a mechanized opening in the roof, effectively cooling the entire house.
