Green and eco-friendly house does not only limits to its building process and materials use. The concept itself can also be a great feature for a house to be eco-friendly. One great sample of that is the Cook+Fox house that is also called as the reptile house. It was being called this way because of its ability to react with the weather through its biomorphic skin. When it is sunny and bright outside, the house turns dark to insulate the house from the heat of the sun. When it is dark on the other hand, its turns clear to absorb light and heat. A pretty amazing green project isn’t it.
