American firm, Salmela Architect, designed a solar-powered electric bungalow in Minnesota. The house is called Electric Bungalow and is designed for Thomas Fisher, an architectural professor at the University of Minnesota. The longtime professor and his wife reside in the unique structure, which is intended to serve as a prototype for environmentally friendly housing.
The Electric Bungalow is Self-powered and was built under consideration of its existing neighborhood's form and aesthetic. Its cost-efficient construction sits on the foundation wall of an old run-down building that encompasses 700 square feet. In its place sits the multi-story Electric Bungalow, complete with an asymmetrical, gabled roof, high ceilings, and windows of varying sizes. The new building totals 1,452 square feet.
