The geodesic dome, which also covers a garden area, gives the family the necessary greenhouse environment to grow much of their food. Apples, cherries, plums, apricots, kiwis, grapes, cucumbers, tomatoes, herbs, squash, and melons are just some of what they can grow in an area that is without sunlight for three months a year. The cozy, rustic interior creates a warm, welcoming environment away from the Arctic Circle’s cold climate. And the spectacular views of nature and the Northern Lights certainly provide unique entertainment for the family on cold winter nights.

They're certainly expensive, thanks in part to the building materials and labor required to construct them. Maison D, by Fouquet Architecture Urbanisme, makes an interesting argument for using budget building materials to produce a stripped-down family house at a relatively affordable price. Located in a suburban area of Couëron, near Nantes, Western France, Maison D features the same kind of utilitarian aesthetic we've admired in Spanish homes like the Espinar House and the Pop Up House, but goes even further in the pursuit of saving a buck. The two-story home boasts a total floorspace of 148 sq m (1,593 sq ft), which is spread over two bathrooms, a car and a bicycle garage, a kitchen and dining area, a lounge, two bedrooms, a conservatory and a covered roof terrace.

The interior decor is dominated by unfinished wood and OSB (oriented strand board), with large sliding doors opening the rooms to the outside.

Designed by University at Buffalo students, the Growlarium—part greenhouse, part solarium—runs on solar and thermal energy to achieve near total self-sufficiency. The dynamic GRoW home adapts to the seasons using passive design that works with the natural environment. Designed and built for the 2015 Solar Decathlon, the GRoW Home was inspired by the growth of solar in New York State and by SolarCity’s decision to build a 1.2 million-square-foot solar factory, one of the largest in the Western hemisphere, in Buffalo. According to the team’s design philosophy, the GRoW home considers four key themes: to “nurture active stewardship, think functional flexibility, live with nature, and recognize energy hierarchy.” Earthbag Pit Greenhouse Plans.
