The h34 house looks like something from the future, with each level stacked on top of the other and layers jutting out from the side. Moreover, the design has given the residences an "A+ energy class" according to DesignBoom, since each detail of the place aims to be eco-friendly.

For example, the house comes equipped with solar panels, systems to catch rainwater for reuse, and geothermal heating. With all of these details, the house certainly deserves that high rating for eco-friendly efficiency. Interestingly, the overall design of the house was based on a Japanese architecture, and this comes across with the slats jutting out from the side. Many buildings in Japan take on this elongated look with roofing, making them stand out from other forms of architecture. Photo Credits: designboom,
