Raw materials are known to be unpleasant to the eye, and untidy when used in a product. However, Gray Oranschi Architecture proves it wrong as they successfully designed a beautiful solar storage barn made from raw materials. The architects organized the lumber on the exterior part of the building in rectangular cubbyholes that creates an artistic mosaic-like texture. Aside from that the barn is also equipped with solar panels on the roof that powers the barn’s lighting and a ground source pumps heat the building geo-thermally, which made a barn a truly eco-friendly architecture. The solar panels produce more energy than the building needs, thus allows the owner to sell the excess electricity to a local utility company.
