– [Glen] Hello friends, I’m Glen.
As some of you know, solar
power is a growing trend
and gaining more respect from
creators all around the world.
In this video, we are discovering
some of the hippest and most extraordinary
solar and eco-friendly homes.
You might even say one of
these is the resurgence
of the legendary city of Atlantis.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number 10.
– [Glen] How does an
exotic oasis in the jungle
off the beaten path sound?
The Villa Duendes is a
stunning dome in Mexico
available for rent,
housing up to four people.
You’ll find wine bottles used as faucets,
branches used as hanging racks,
and a sea shell used as the shower head.
A ventilated skylight, small kitchen,
and television are included.
Outside of this exotic property
there are pools to cool off in,
or a hot tub to get things steamy.
Hammocks are present as well
for when you wanna simply rest
and listen to nature’s song.
No doubt, this is one
unique exotic retreat.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number nine.
– [Glen] This award winning
futuristically-designed home
looks like something you’d find
in the Capital from the Hunger Games.
Constructed by Virginia Tech students,
the Lumenhaus has top-notch
energy efficient technology.
It is solely powered by solar energy.
It has a rain water harvesting system
that’ll enable you to bathe
in pure, filtered rain water.
The LED lighting throughout
reduces energy usage.
A fabulously clever ellipsis system
will automatically adjust the
home’s lighting and shading
depending on the day’s
current weather forecast.
The Lumenhaus exudes green
and innovative living,
whether it’s your home or office space.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number eight.
– [Glen] Originally built
as a writing pad and library
for a historian, the 2,000 square foot pad
is an enchanting work
of modern architecture.
At the entry you have a 12-foot door,
which leads to a set of wooden stairs.
Well-lit, this studio
pad gives an airy feel,
while completely encircled with bookcases.
Staying connected with
the nature around you
is made easy by a large
window in the main room.
What also makes this
studio pad quite unique
is its copper exterior,
which makes the color shift
at different points in the day
or with the seasonal change.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number seven.
– [Glen] Take a look
at this metal cylinder
purchased from Craigslist
and turned into a tiny modern home.
This 366 square foot home
has almost custom-designed everything,
from the furniture to the appliances,
to work with the circular space.
The 10-foot front door is sliding glass,
which serves as an excellent
way to open up space
to nature’s beauty.
Leading up to the loft
bedroom is a spiral staircase
where ample cabinets and storage are.
The shower is somewhat
unique to this property,
being located right outside
the home open to the naked sky
and prying eyes of bluejays and cardinals.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number six.
– [Glen] The northern lights in Norway
are a grand sight to see,
and you can get a personal experience
with a booking at these
eco-friendly cabins.
One house is specific to kitchen needs,
while one is devoted to the washing room.
There’s even a specific room for studying,
reflecting, and creative thinking.
The cabins feature
floor-to-ceiling windows,
keeping you engaged with
the mountain terrain
and sea nearby.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number five.
– [Glen] Created by Ghent
University students,
this cubed house is making
for a solid contender
in solar powered homes.
Its two stories feature
two bedrooms upstairs,
while the kitchen, dining, and living room
sit on the ground floor.
On the interior,
surfaces are left bare and unfinished
as to allow the buyer to
decorate it to their liking.
Its savvy solar roof and
unique insulation techniques
make it an extraordinary zero energy home,
and it’s capable of fitting
into most urban areas.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number four.
– [Glen] Still in its
early stages of design,
this eco-resort aims to create a clean
and environmentally friendly getaway.
It would be built entirely
from recycled materials,
and would be self-sufficient.
Solar panels and underwater turbines
that capture wave energy would be used
to power the Nautilus.
12 small museum hotels would be an option,
as well as 12 rotating towers,
containing 162 apartments
that follow the path of the sun.
Plant walls and photo uptake
cells aid in natural cooling
and help generate electricity.
Sea water and rain water
are made to be reusable.
At the center of the resort
is the origami mountain,
which would contain the
scientific research center
and recreational base.
Its like the Nautilus is
the rebirth of Atlantis,
and we’re ready for is.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number three.
– [Glen] The Pinea suite
is an exciting combination
of a cabin, tent, and
tree house all in one.
Beneath this triratial hut
is a covered picnic area
that sits on wood and artificial grass.
Moving into the interior,
small lamps are on each side of the bed,
which contain a battery, allowing
you to charge your phone.
The front door is a
waterproof fabric cover,
giving it more of that
tent feels that says,
let’s be more intimate with nature.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number two.
– [Glen] For those of you who like
a good train car transformation,
you’ll enjoy this tiny
320 square foot space.
What makes it even more appealing
is that it comes fully
furnished including a shower,
toilet, sink, and kitchen appliances.
Its double doors and a
fair number of windows
keep a nice amount of
natural light coming in.
(uplifting music)
– [Narrator] Number one.
– [Glen] You don’t have
to get bored with one view
in this home, with its
360 degree rotation.
Italian design, its made
to be utterly eco-friendly
and its built with natural materials.
It spins on a central pillar,
which also allows the solar panels
to follow the sun’s
path throughout the day.
One unique feature is its
ability to quickly dismantle
and be reconstructed in a new location.
The interior is well-lit by natural light
due to its many windows
and exudes modern comfort.
As the Italians might say,
(speaking in Italian).
(uplifting music)
Our way of living might be changing,
but there’s no denying its an innovative
and even magical prospect.
All these options prove
you don’t have to skimp
on your personal style to
live more eco-efficient.
Let me know in the comments
below what you see yourself in,
or what retreat you’d go visit.
As usual, you can find more

eco homes below in the descriptions box.
See you soon in the next feature.

    Nautilus Eco-Resort is the future. I would love living there

  • August 10, 2019 at 1:26 pm

    A few of these caught my eye but the copper-clad #8 was my pick. I'd love it if you could expand on this one, I'm old-school and loved the bookshelves…
    While I can read anything on my phone these days, books should be books! The downside is that you've got to store them and this design had plenty of bookshelves. Yeah, give us more details about #8, copper is a great material that often times is restricted to the wiring inside the walls. Great video, as always.

    I believe the satellite in question is the Vanguard 1. "It allowed mapmakers to more accurately place the South Pacific islands and proved that solar cells were viable for the space program." Smithsoniandotcom

    I wonder what the 1st house in mexico is made out of? Aircrete? Cob? Cordwood?Sandbags? I was thinking of building a cord wood cabin (logs cut 12 in long, stacked like bricks with mortar holding then in place, also stacked bottles to allow light in ) I can get all the logs and bottles for free, cheaper but more labor intensive VS an A-frame home…
    I screwed up…. instead of buying 2 homes on 30 yr mortgages. I should bought 1 or 2 acres of land outside city limits with cash/no long term loans.. Then built a cord wood or A-frame home, once paid off build a garage, build and pay it off as you go…When I got sick, I still would of owned everything outright and been able to keep it all… Instead of getting sick then losing both homes to foreclosure after owning both for 15 years and 7 yrs….
    With an A-frame, cordwood or cabin built, I could of also added wood burning for heat, A cheap diy geothermal system for heat in winter and cool air for summer, a solar/wind system and backup generator, small secondary propane heater. Water collection and would of had no water/sewer bill, no gas or electric bill,ect..Only a small yearly property tax.

    Copper exterior, that outta be cheap….Leave your copper home in the woods for a week vacation and come back to find all the copper stripped off.

  • August 11, 2019 at 2:39 am

    6:49 I guessed Sputnik?

  • August 11, 2019 at 2:44 am

    Me and Chandni are going to get one of these homes and live happily ever after.

  • August 11, 2019 at 4:14 am

    Okay once again outside of my general comfort zone but I believe the derelict satellite is the Vanguard 1. I can tell you if indeed it is Vanguard 1 it was manufactured by the US Naval Research Laboratory, designed primarily to test launch capabilities of three stage launch vehicles, according to NASA documents. Launched on March 17, 1958 from Cape Canaveral. Cool video would love to see more practical and affordable solar solutions for everyday living!

  • August 11, 2019 at 4:46 am

    I want them today NOWWWWWWWWWWWW

  • August 11, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Interesting thanks for sharing Mind Eye. But I’m a home owner in Hawaii so I’m very content.

  • August 11, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    I would love to see number 4 built

  • August 11, 2019 at 5:56 pm

    Had to laugh at the mosquito for getting close to nature πŸ˜‰

  • August 11, 2019 at 10:47 pm

    Love the MODS tiny home. It would be a great size for us, as empty nesters now, or our son who's just getting started.

  • August 12, 2019 at 3:32 am

    Really liked the Natalis mockup. Just saw Aqua Man stunning.

  • August 12, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    What a wonderful video, I really enjoyed it.

  • August 14, 2019 at 8:33 am

    Casa Ruotante – the Italians certainly give you the spin!

  • August 15, 2019 at 6:43 am

    I think that little solar space ship was Sputnik but I don’t know what it was used for

  • August 15, 2019 at 11:55 pm

    Great vid. 10, 7 and 1 for me, though number 4 is very interesting. Thank you, always so interesting.

    Mejores cosas

  • September 2, 2019 at 9:09 am

    All these wonderful houses and the only people their intended for are those with plenty of money, it makes me so depressed that l cant stand how so many people look at life, we're all in need of something to live in of our own.

  • September 28, 2019 at 3:39 pm

    I love love love your designs!! Thank you so much for uploading, I have really enjoyed viewing and dreaming of which I would most like to live in! Sort of partial to the dome homes. When in college I lived in one and loved it, so I have always wanted to do so again.

  • October 12, 2019 at 2:02 am

    #4 is very kool looking . I want to see more places with this design. I also like the rotating houses.
