The Urban Green House Is Really Green

No, I don't mean that the Urban Green House is colored green, it's green in the eco-sense of the word. In fact, it's pretty much wood, concrete and black siding on the outside. So how is it green? Well, it is designed to be narrow, letting air flow through naturally during the summer while the wide roof and porch prevents excess sun from entering your home.

The design, by Eric Odor with Chris Meyer of SALA Architects, also features passive solar heating, bamboo floors, composite fiber-cement siding and other eco-friendly elements.
