In places where sunlight is more dominant than others, such as in the Mission District located in Twin Peaks, San Francisco, solar rays are the ultimate power source, hence the Mission: House. In a location with an abundance of sunlight, Interstice Architects took it upon themselves to utilize this energy and construct a high-tech home that can recycle natural resources.

Originally designed as a test lab for building strategies, the Mission: House is encased in a solar multi-faceted "greenskin" shell made of recycled windows and ultimately uses smart passive solar strategies that synthesizes solar energy. However, not only does the house have an exposed open-air bathroom, the house does not provide much insulation from the cold. Stats for Solarized Glass Homes Trending: Older & Chilly
