Life Improving Guide

Isolée self-sufficient retreat comes with a moving rooftop solar tree

Recently, we saw the prefabricated, self-sustained MOSS auxiliary office unit that allows employees to work from home. Now, we have the Isolée by Dutch design studio Tjep., an eco friendly retreat with huge opening shutters, a moving rooftop solar tree and an integrated intelligent heating system. Designed by Agustina Cociffi and Frank Tjepkem, the three-storey Isolée house combines smart technology with neat sophistication, with minimal impact on environment.

The Isolée looks like being attached to the landscape using only four points, with the concrete foundation poles hidden inside. The solar panels, shaped like flowers, move to follow the path of the sun to meet all the power needs for the house. A wood-burning stove allows for heating using a system of water that goes through the walls. The shuttered facades are connected to a computer that activates a closing mechanism in case a storm is approaching. The design studio is on the lookout for partners to develop a prototype of the project.
