Energy consumption in construction has become the world's top energy consumer. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, great architect of the 20th century, said: “The art of building is the will of the times carried by space”. We hope that architecture is not only a living space, but also an organic balance with the ecological environment. This project is located in the mountains of Luodian County, Guizhou with unique natural scenery and strong humanistic style. This is a homestay with almost “zero” energy consumption. The roof is made of latest flexible solar panels from Switzerland which can be directly attached to the curved roof and weighs only 3.5kg per square. The 36 solar panels can generate 8kw of power. The extra power is stored in the battery inside the house, so there is no need to worry about power supply even during the rainy season. The rainwater collection and filtration device enables the supply of water for daily life. In the middle of the cabin is a huge glass, through which the residents can get the mountainous scenery of Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau and enjoy the healing of nature. Smooth curves and visual lines create a sense of architectural hierarchy. The minimalist design reflects not only the modernist beauty of form following function, but also the post-modern beauty of form following emotion. In the selection of materials, the space uses materials that are less harmful to the ecology as much as possible, restricts the cost of decoration, including the use of natural light, and always follows the minimalist way of life and aesthetics.
