With the final touches of Blair Road\'s new eco-center, officials at the rare charity research sanctuary cut the ribbon Thursday morning at a completely different type of learning center.
\"We don\'t know when we start something like this that will be part of our organization,\" reserve chairman Keith Ainsworth said when he opened the North house.
The facility is in sharp contrast to the 19th-century farmhouse, which sits 900 metres from the rare
Acre property in the suburbs of Cambridge. It is a solar-powered, 800-square-
A bungalow 3,000 tallsquare-
Foot deck created by students from three universities.
The North House was originally built in 2009 by students from the University of Waterloo, Simon Fraser University and Ryerson University to participate in the Solar Decathlon competition of the US Department of Energy, staged at the National Mall in Washington, D. C. C.
The project won an award, but once the game is over, the North house is packed up until a new home is found.
Found the home.
\"The University of Michigan wants it, but we are lucky to have a memorandum of understanding with the University of Waterloo so it can come here,\" said Patti Leather, communications manager at Rare . \".
The design of the North House is ultra-modern-a cube covered with solar panels with large double
Glass windows on three sides.
The window allows natural light to flood its main room, while the external blinds system connected to the rooftop weather station automatically adjusts to control the heat and glare generated by solar energy on the window.
North House shows how to do more with less money in the future.
It takes advantage of the space per square inch, there is a bed that falls from the ceiling, hooks and towel bars that pop up from the wall, and more
Purpose furniture, two sliding glass doors close to the shower, and storage room hidden in every corner and Gap.
The house is also surrounded by a large cedar deck, which creates a three
Outdoor living space.
The house is heated and cooled by the ground
3 Forms of solar panels provide power to lighting devices and their water heaters.
The roof also collects water from the gray water system, reducing the filtered water consumption of the home.
Catherine MacLeod, director of research and education at Rare, said North house will be a testing platform not only for the new technology being developed, but also for the way people use it on a daily basis.
\"This is just the beginning,\" she said . \"
\"The North house will be a living laboratory.
We want to see something long.
So we collect data about human behavior and how space is used.
\"The creation cost of North house is about $2 million, and the cost of re-creation is about $400,000. built at rare.
The Savvas Chamberlain Family Foundation funded part of the project.
\"We want to be involved because it introduces children not only to nature, but also to new technologies,\" said Savvas Chamberlain . \".
Laurel Barhydt is one of the architecture students who designed the North house.
\"My heart absolutely exploded,\" she said at the opening ceremony . \".
\"I was ecstatic to see that there was another life.
\"Officials at the Rare are working to include the North House in their project and hope the facility will be open to the public later this summer.
