German architect Rolf Disch has designed a record-breaking house that gives maximum access to daylight with the help of solar collectors. The Heliotrop House features a rotating mechanism that allows it to generate up to six times more energy than the requirement. The Heliotrop House also features a rooftop deck with railings supported by passively-heated water pipes. The most notable feature of the house is the varied seasonal heating system.
