The ‘Silo House’ was a home designed by the students at Cornell University for the ‘Solar Decathlon’ contest. The goal was to build a house that is attractive in design, modern and most importantly, solar-powered.

The home is cylindrical in shape, which makes it stand out all the more. Like a regular family home, it too has a kitchen, family room and a few bedrooms. The main feature of the Silo House is the roof, which is made out of solar-powered panels. For more information about this unique home, visit the source links provided.
