441 Tamalpais sits at the end of a road in a serene hillside location close to hiking trails and nature. The family home enjoys an abundance of natural light thanks to large glazed sliding doors that minimize the need for artificial lighting, and the open-plan layout provides flexibility as the family matures. Related: Terraced Hollywood Hills House Eliminates the Need for Air Conditioning Every room of the terraced home has a strong connection to the surroundings and features a shaded deck made from recycled bamboo flooring. The home is equipped with a 10Kw solar photovoltaic system, which provides energy for a hyper-efficient mini-split heat pump heating and air conditioning, as well as an automatic Heat Recovery Ventilation System (HRV) that operates around the clock. The home was designed to be virtually maintenance free with long-lasting materials that also age beautifully, including the rusty corten steel facade. + Zack De Vito Via Arch Daily Images via  Bruce Damonte

Comments Off on Scientists Discover Deep-Sea Mussels That Can Convert Hydrogen into Energy

According to scientists, there are mussels at the bottom of the ocean that are efficiently converting hydrogen into energy in their very own, nature-made hydrogen fuel cells. The mussels, discovered by the Max Planck Institute of Marine Microbiology and the Cluster of Excellence (MARUM), were found near hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor and have onboard symbiotic bacteria that convert hydrogen into energy . With this discovery, researchers might be able to clone the hydrogen eating bacteria to create all-natural hydrogen fuel cells to power things other than sea life.
