The Massimo Iosa Ghini 'Biotech' home is a visionary housing project that tried to make a house entirely carbon neutral by creating a sustainable, green and essentially alive space. The house is designed with a green wall and through that it also becomes sustainable and self-efficient.

The outer vegetation covers a metal netting, within which there are entirely recycled furnishings. The Massimo Iosa Ghini Biotech home uses renewable energy to power the house, for example using LED lights for the houses lighting scheme. The house is pretty revolutionary and makes a statement about the endless possibilities of going green.
