Solar panels aren't the prettiest things for neighbors to view. This eco-friendly home in Spain designed by Desiño Earle tries to conceal the panels by putting them on the slope of the roof.

The 'Eco House' also uses water to cool the living area by running a canal through the home with reclaimed rainwater. Grey water is recycled via a tank in the basement, and the solar power fulfills the electrical needs.

Implications - This innovative structure is groundbreaking for citizens who are eager to adopt green practices into their lifestyles. Not only is this home more gentle on the environment, but it would also be financially wiser in the long run.
