Refrigerators are the highest energy consumer product in the average American home. While building a solar house intended to be the most energy efficient home we could make, the refrigerator was a critical part of the design. After completing the concept, a zoned fridge with windows, another designer, Jon Hosler, joined on the exterior of the fridge. We wanted to keep a wood accent in the fridge to remind the user about the importance of saving the environment.
