No, this is not the book written by John Steinbeck. “The Pearl” is the name of the new eco-friendly housed design made by David Fanchon. (David Fanchon is also known for the Domespace house) The Pearl is a new design aimed to maximize passive solar energy by integrating solar panels to the structure of the house. The panels can also be adjusted so that their energy collection capacity can be optimized; very much suitable for the changing seasons. Additional details in the structure on the house can also enhance its eco-friendliness (example of details: tanks that can collect rain water, geothermal heating systems, etc)
Since the days in our country are almost always sunny, this kind of house is very much suitable to our country. This might even help us save a significant amount in our electricity bills.
