solar umbrella house: pugh + scarpa architects
Solar Umbrella House is 100% powered by solar energy. Owners and the principals of Pugh + Scarpa Architects, Angela Brooks and Lawrence Scarpa, created this home to be economical and solar-powered. Photovoltaic solar panels convert 100 per cent of the home's power. The home is also equipped with solar hydronic heating panels, a storm-water recycling system, eco construction materials & heat-retaining concrete. Radiant floor heating is powered by one of three solar hot-water panels.
