PlusHouse

Oakland

This new home high above the San Francisco Bay is 100% sustainable. In addition to being net-zero energy the “PLUShouse” earns its name by collecting and reusing rainwater from the roof and greywater from inside the house to be used in a way that we’ve never done before……the house is prepped to someday actually use the reclaimed water as drinking water!

A 14.9 KwH roof-top photovoltaic array supplies all the power to the all-electric house and also charges the car. Large windows and doors provide dramatic panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay and on hot days open up to allow the ocean breezes to cool the house.
