Through this self-sufficient Hawaiian home, design consultancy LifeEdited exhibits how architecture can have minimal environmental impact through structural arrangement with technological innovation and material use. Presenting "a vision of the future that is sustainable, resilient and frankly, awesome," LifeEdited creates the house of the future through smart design.

The Hawaiian home boasts "efficient LED lights and low-energy air-conditioning." While the framework of the structure is created with recycled materials and Fibrex -- a durable composite, the roof is equipped with thin solar panels that provide energy supply for all utilities in the house. In addition, the Hawaiian home collects rainwater via chains. The liquid is then "filtered on-site and stored in a tank" for future use.

The Hawaiian home was specifically designed to cooperate with the needs and mission statement of the island's clean energy initiative.
