This Norwegian House/Powerplant Produces More Than Twice The Energy It Uses
The slanted roof is set at the optimal angle to absorb sun throughout the year and also helps naturally ventilate the house. “We didn’t want to allow the technology to be the driver of the design in the house,” says Edwards. “We didn’t want the experience of the dwelling to just be electric equipment and sensors, so we focused on natural ventilation. The windows fully open, and it’s shaped for a natural updraft, to let air out of the building.”
The house was also designed to maximize natural light without overheating in Norway’s long summer days. “One of our goals was not to need sun shading, so you don’t have to pull down blinds when you most want to see out your window,” Edwards explains. “For example, the atrium gives an enormous amount of light but doesn’t require you shades that close out the view.”
Different technologies will be tested as the house operates, like multiple systems for heating and hot water, so the team can measure and analyze which is most efficient.

A would-be attacker who grabbed a 14-year-old girl was left battered and bruised after it turned out his attempted victim was a martial artist. The schoolgirl was walking home alone through Tilgate Park in Crawley when the 35-year-old man grabbed her arms from behind, police said. Despite being more than 20 years younger than him, the teenager, who has studied martial arts for several years, then managed to break free from his hold and proceeded to punch and kick the attacker.
