Techstyle Haus is live! Techstyle Haus is the world’s first Passivhaus-certified house made with an entirely fabric enclosure. It was created for the 2014 Solar Decathlon competition, which challenged 20 student teams to design and construct a solar-powered house in Versailles, France. It currently resides in Domaine de Boisbuchet.
