Self-Sufficient Home For Work and Play
How about making a hearty meal using freshly picked vegetables from your lush rooftop garden? The Yin and Yang House is a self-sufficient home built in 2017. It was designed for an unconventional family who wanted to be food-independent in rural Kassel, Germany.
This tiny house has a comfortable and seemingly spacious living area. The home features a minimal timber structure, complete with an office space, kid’s bedroom, master’s bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining area. On the second level, there are workspaces available and additional sitting areas. It also has huge windows that allow natural light. With scenic views and a terrace roof garden, it encourages a more mindful and environment-friendly way of life.
The house is shaped by two separate entities that are connected in a harmonious way with a green roof. Similar than a Yin & Yang sign, the two main areas of the house are intertwined. One half for living, the other half for working. The two roof-sides shape like mountains from the ground to their highest points and surround the garden like a valley in-between them. The ascending roof channels rainwater to the ground where it is stored and reused on dry days to water the plants.
