The OFF-GRID Building

General remarks

The off-grid building is a complete independent house, which isn’t linked to a network but can provide and manage normal needs like energy, gas, water and sewage, for the people living inside.

It is a system, which is in close communion with nature and only uses resources which are made available by the sun, the wind and the rain, without polluting the environment or affect the climate.

The autonomous actions of the users ensure the independence of supply as well as the profitability of the building and have a direct impact on the ecological footprint of the building, which is also improved by the nontoxic and sound building materials.
