Green Home made by Victoria University students

The architecture students designed a home, located at the Wellington waterfront which  packs 28 solar panels, 48 water-collecting tubes on the roof for a solar-powered hot water system, triple glazing and wool insulation.

This house cost 500.000$ to be built.

“We had what must have been two-and-a-half thousand people through, even though the weather was pretty blustery and cold.
The line was stretching back about 30 or 40 metres, and [on Saturday] even though it was pouring with rain, we still had up to 60 people inside the house at a time” said Nick Officer one of the architecture students behind the project.

Now this eco-house is in Frank Kitts Park till May 24 after which it will be dismantled, packed up and moved to Washington DC.
