If wine lovers could picture an eco-friendly and very modern-looking wine house on a sunny vineyard, this design by Michael Jantzen would be it. This 5,000 square foot Solar Vineyard House would include an in-house wine-making facility. It would generate energy off the curved solar panels that are mounted along the roof. The house would have natural ventilation, with no curtains necessary due to the angling of the wooden planks that act as natural blinds to filter light entering the house.

This structure would collect rainwater for use. Pathways that surround the house would consist of sustainably produced wood. The Solar Vineyard House concept is sleek in its design, as well as its ecological motive; it would bring every environmentally-conscious wine lover’s dream to life.
