The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Meltwater house.

Meltwater's undulating exterior rainscreen echoes the topography of the Menomonee Valley in Wisconsin.

Meltwater's interior living spaces are roomy to begin with, but the entertaining area gets a boost when components like the dining table and kitchen island are folded out of the way.

A Murphy bed is just one of the many flexible elements in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's house.

Meltwater's bathroom is long and narrow, tucked away on one side of the hallway leading to the back deck.

LED lights strategically placed in the base of the house and deck help the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's solar-powered home illuminate at night during the lighting contest.
