Here the Creative Wooden Solar House Architecture with Large Space for Outdoor and Indoor Activities. this house using renewable energies, especially solar energy, at home. wooden house features an organic shape, some hi-tech features and a very affordable construction cost. The house is mostly done of wood, plywood and other materials that are not steel, as the basic structural material is deduced from two lines of thought, the first being that a solar house must be reduced from a solar material and the second that the choice of wood leads to structural elements and components which are small, light and manageable. this not only features a rounded shape that allows for maximum internal volume with minimal exterior surface but is elevated off the ground upon three ‘legs’, in order to create a space under the house for some outdoor activities. The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) designed the Fab Lab house as their entry into the 2010 Solar Decathlon Europe.

Here are the cliff house by altius architecture the house design with traditional style on cliffside in Muskoka Lakes, Ontario, Canada. This form of housing comes the rocky cliff using the same local granite to form its base. The core acts as an anchor light circular motion, and air into living spaces that picks out cantilever and the landscape. Despite its modest scale, the house easily accommodates a family of four, providing convenience to the kitchen, dining room, living room, reading and sleeping, and each is carefully attuned to the unique vision of light and breeze of the cliff. To balance the heavy weight from fireplaces; swing volumes, flying roofs and floor to ceiling glass are used to achieve the lightness as he works to bring the lake into living spaces. This system implements a strategy to gain mass and passive solar energy has the daily passage of the sun and air circulation at different times for each area. In summer, solar heat gain, while shadowing the boundaries of operable windows are oriented to take advantage of natural ventilation. The windows are operating within the central circulation are designed to make use of the chimney effect, so that hot air is vented out obsolete and cool fresh air is drawn in green roofs are designed to mediate the control of temperature and flow to connect the the first construction plan with the distant landscape. In winter, windows and optimized solar orientation are used in conjunction with the thermal mass in the form of concrete slabs and stone walls and two fireplaces inside to store the sun’s radiant energy to form the basis of the heating system. A project of the envelope of high performance also works to limit heat loss and gain favorable throughout the year.
