4TH PLACE OVERALL

After a roller coaster ride on the scoring board during the past days of the competition, penalty points we had to fight to get back, we are incredibly happy and proud to have finished the Solar Decathlon 4th out of 20!

We can’t believe the competition is over but are excited for the future and what doors will open for our house – and where our house will finally open its doors.
