Nu Shelter House

A two story energy-efficient house has a living roof that wraps around the first level of rooftops.

A lightweight system is planted with various succulent groundcovers to provide a multitude of performance benefits for the dwelling.

The upper level rooftop is used for harvesting rainwater and to house a solar PV array.

This nu-shelter home has integrated itself well into the fabric of a historic neighborhood of Mountain View.
