Italian architect Renato Peron , designed the “Casa dos Cajueiros” using reforested eucalyptus wood and natural fibers to minimize its ecological footprint. The home, which belongs to the Origami Eco Residence, is located in Camamu Bay, Brazil and takes full advantage of the natural ventilation flowing from the Atlantic Ocean. Inspired by origami , the unique palm-fiber roof is topped by solar panels, which due to the roof’s many slopes and folds, maximizes exposure to the sun during its daily trajectory. Ecologically friendly water harvesting, filtration, and irrigation systems also contribute to making the Casa dos Cajueiros a notable example of sustainable architecture in the region. + Renato Peron The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
