Going green together

When you think about living off-grid, it’s easy to imagine a cabin nestled deep in the woods. However, the reality is that soon even everyday homes will need to do their part to generate and conserve energy. To help overcome the challenges of climate change, pollution, and dwindling traditional energy resources, Umwelt Arena set out to create the world’s first off-grid multi-occupancy home.

When you think about living off-grid, it’s easy to imagine a cabin nestled deep in the woods. However, the reality is that soon even everyday homes will need to do their part to generate and conserve energy. To help overcome the challenges of climate change, pollution, and dwindling traditional energy resources, Umwelt Arena set out to create the world’s first off-grid multi-occupancy home.

Built in Brütten, Switzerland, this solar-powered multi-unit building generates all the electricity and heating needs for nine families, with no connection to the conventional power grid.
