Photo of the Week: As a Storm Rolls in, a Climate Smart House Is Put to the Test

By Paige Alexus
Each week, we tap into Dwell's Instagram community to bring you the most viral design and architecture shots of the week.

Captured in Queenstown, New Zealand, this stormy shot of the Taramea Passive House was sent to us by @hideandseekstyle. Designed with the help of Energy Architecture NZ Ltd, this home was built with a PassivHaus energy model that considered the best ways to fit in with the local climate.
