The intelligent design enhances energy efficiency by reducing the heating and cooling load. Resilient materials increase the home’s ability to withstand nature’s fury; and an integrated solar + battery storage system ensures that the house will remain functional in the event of an extreme climate event or power outage. 

Importantly, the VISION House Austin demonstrates that sustainable architecture can be affordable and practical for everyday living, and that a home with lower carbon footprint can lead to a higher quality of life for homeowners.
