HALO – Passive Solar Home Designed by Swedish Students

    A great use of space, maximized and no wasted space. Gives a sense of a much large home by the creative design. Also like the way you have created out of doors ‘rooms’/spaces yet maintaining privacy. Its like a personal earth ship 🙂 thank you for sharing
