Hybrid House, by konyk
Modeled after the successful Prius Hybrid automobile by the Toyota Motor Company, HYBRID HOUSE by konyk is intended to be an electric house completely off the local utility grid. By manipulating the surface area for maximum solar exposure and utilizing thin battery packs embedded the foundation slab, HYBRID HOUSE converts the sun into AC current to run all of the utilities of the house. In the event of cloudy or snowy days, a bio-fuel back up generator kicks in to allow seamless power utilization.
