The Concept House Institute of Building and Business Administration house -- also known as the CHiBB house for the sake of brevity -- is an exceptionally unique and wonderfully sustainable house that is effectively a massive, over-sized greenhouse. This particular home will serve as a living space and home for Dutch stylist Helly Scholten and her family for a period of three years, and is designed to make it possible to explore new sustainable living methods.

This particular concept house features a large glazed area on the top as well as a rooftop vegetable garden. The home's temperature cam only be controlled by opening specially operable windows, while a solar-powered water heating system allows the home's occupants to enjoy hot water.

Ultimately, the CHiBB house is a worthwhile and important experiment into seeing how far sustainable living methods can be pushed.
