The home of Jarle Hegerland features a rotating design that enables the modern house to spin throughout the course of the day in order to follow the sun. The house is situated on a plot of land that has been fitted with a large spinning platform that is operated from below via a complex mechanism. This system operates through the day to turn the home in a slow manner to maximize the amount of sunlight that makes its way through the windows.
The rotating design of the home enables more heat to be captured within the home to keep it at a more comfortable temperature during the winter months. Moreover, it enables inhabitants to maximize their sun exposure without having to constantly head outside to do so.
