8 Surprisingly Sustainable Modern Homes

Here at Dwell, we love a good form, but only in tandem with function. These ultra-green, sustainable homes prove that a light footprint is possible no matter what the architectural style—the most modern approach of all.

The view from this almost-off-the-grid Maine cabin underscores its remote location on one of the outermost islands on the American eastern seaboard. The home sports four solar panels that easily collects a week’s worth of surplus energy when stored in auxiliary batteries. A hot outdoor shower works thanks to an on-demand, gravity-driven water heater, one of only two appliances to operate off propane (the other is the stove). Photo by Eirik Johnson.
