The Phoenix House is a solar home designed to be an outpost for living off the grid. Designed by architect Robert Augustine, the Phoenix House is set in the intensely hot, dry climate of the desert near Phoenix, Arizona. It celebrates the potential of emerging photovoltaic and wind technologies and couples them with passive energy design strategies to create a “machine for living.” It is responsive to the external environment and adjusts the internal climate and conditions for optimum comfort, convenience and lifestyle.
