Los Angeles, March 24, 2016
After substantial media attention, Mõ Ventus begins its international debut, introducing an unmatched real estate experience to the world. Designed by rising architect Todd Fix [a recent addition to NADAAA Inc., the top U.S. architectural design firm 3 years running (source AIA)], the concept of this one-of-a-kind structure is that it has the ability to be built and sustained completely off the grid - or give power back to the grid - giving new meaning to the idea of a lavish escape.
In a time when noise seems impossible to silence and complete privacy is a rare treasure to come by, Mõ Ventus and off-the-grid living brings an unparalleled opportunity to the industry. Functioning as a “zero-net-site-energy” home, which changes with the weather and operates via wind and solar power, Mõ Ventus creates the opportunity to reside in even the most remote locations. The epitome of high-end privacy, the structure uniquely allows for a deep emersion into nature and a true connectedness to its environment. With 180-degree views, transparent floors and ceilings, and a studio separated by an open-air cantilever bridge, Mõ Ventus establishes a quintessential and inspirational home-office atmosphere.
Mõ Ventus has become a portfolio of three separate residential designs naturally consisting of one or two of the key components: Mõtus, the shape-shifting, real-time articulating movement of the structure; and Ventus the wind powered futuristic tower elevating into a truly surreal experience with the surrounding world.
Ryan Ole Hass, of the elite global real estate brand Engel & Völkers, has partnered with Fix to coordinate the efforts behind selecting a principle, acquisition of the development site and project management. With news of the project spreading across the globe, Ole Hass is off to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, and Dubai for a series of meetings with top-tier investors, influencers, developers, and high-wealth individuals to discuss Mõ Ventus details. At home in the United States, Mõ Ventus is already on its way to becoming a star – because of it's unique and sustainable qualities the team was recently approached by a major movie studio to feature Mõ Ventus in a motion picture with a sustainability in architecture message.
