Alaska Home Residence Concept is a Friend of the Winds

Designed by agency OS+A, the Alaska Home Residence Concept has been made to work with the wind flow of the region. It has been designed to work almost as a wind tunnel and stay nearly undisturbed in the high winds that mark the region. The cladding of the house is inspired by the abdomen (tail) of lobsters.

The roof of the house, while serving for strength and safety, also works for harvesting wind and solar energy. Designed as a single family house, the structure has large windows to allow for sunshine to allow for natural lighting and heat from the sun.
