Solar-powered Bach design by New Zealand students of Victoria University of Wellington for the Solar Decathlon Competition 2011 in Washington DC. (via: designdaily)
“The FirstLight house channels the essence of the iconic “Kiwi bach” – a focus on recreation, socialisation, and outdoor living. As primarily a summer destination, life at the bach takes place as much outside, on large decks and patios, as it does inside. Our house brings these ideals of bach life into a contemporary setting, providing a permanent residence where recreation and social activities are united with environmentally sound technologies.” (via: Firstlighthouse)

Simple, easy living. Nothing too complicated, open-space interior exterior with a large deck. Typical bach! Haha.
