As you know, in the southern hemisphere the opposite is true: in the winter – summer in the new year – hot, people walk upside down, and the water flows down a drain, twisting counterclockwise. All these oddities are complemented by the fact that they house plants are planted too contrary – rhizome up and flourishing part down. Such a system of flower pots, called Sky Planter came up with designer Patrick Morris  from the company Boskke, which is located in Wellington, New Zealand.

British footballer Gary Neville  became the owner of an unusual house, built on the slopes of the Pieniny Mountains, in Bolton. With altitude, organically integrated into the natural context of a huge pyatilistny flower can be taken as a mysterious character, left to us by space aliens. When devising innovative embedded in the ground facility architects have planned quite traditional functional areas. Pyatilistny flower includes living room, four bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, spacious patio, which merged with each other by underground passages.

According to the authors, the customer was actively involved in the development process, as she is a passionate patriot of the natural beauty of this area. Certainly, high quality technology and design has become the main driving force of the project, but the desire to maximize eco-efficiency of future housing was defined from the outse.

Beautiful and functional home, lying in the area of 750 square meters, was built using the most advanced eco-technologies. Organic roof helps to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature and humidity, as in the cold season, and in the warm season. Flower – dugout is energy self-sufficiency. Electricity generated by wind turbines and solar panels installed on the roof. For an autonomous heating and hot water supply architects installed a geothermal heat pump that uses the properties of land, groundwater and surface water.
