Viridian Future 1

Aiming to be not just the most environmentally sustainable townhouse in Manhattan, but a net zero energy home.

Back to Plans

When we decided that the only way to install solar panels on our building was to put them on a canopy 2.7M (9ft) above the roof, we knew that we had to create a solar canopy that is both an artistic statement in itself, and shows others that solar need not be ugly. So this is the vision we came up with for our roof. What do you think?

Our roof is going to look something like this. Solar PV panels will generate all the electricity the house uses, and solar thermal panels will generate all the hot water the house uses. We are still working on the details, but this is our vision. After careful discussion about the timing and peak demand of the hot tub, we have decided to remove it from the design.
