An architectural design can be considered green or eco-friendly for various reasons and in the case of the Cloud No.9 by Andrew Simpson Architects. The Cloud No.9 has ample natural illuminations in the entire structure.
If you were to tour around the house through its photos, you can obviously notice the natural illumination coming in through its translucent to transparent glass walls. Residents of this home will experience natural light in almost all parts of the house from the kitchen to the staircase and even in the bedroom. The Cloud No.9 house is spacious enough and it looks like a renovation of an old structure, which is a great act of reducing waste.

Biking can be the cleanest way of transportation. It does not consume any gas to power nor produces gas that causes air pollution. The only downside of using the bicycle as a means of transportation, you are not safe enough when the rain pours down. This is what the Swedish designer Torkel Dohmers is considering that is why he came out with the ThisWay Bike. ThisWay is a unique bicycle design that has a roof intended to protect the cyclist from bad weather like rain and too much heat of the sun. With the comfort that ThisWay may bring, the designer is expecting that more and more people will now be encouraged to go biking. In addition, it also has built-in battery powered LED lights on the front and rear wherein it can be recharged, using the solar cells mounted on the roof.
