The need for security and comfort must have motivated prehistoric man to form his own cave dwelling. Since then, the concept of a house has gone through tremendous changes from the flawless houses of ancient civilizations to the modern-day high-rise settlements. Although modern homes provide comfort and luxury besides supporting the growing population well, they also lead to excess power consumption due to lighting in common areas, operation of lifts, among others. The Story of House talks about the evolution of homes, besides highlighting the dark side of luxury housing. At the same time, it offers smart green solutions to make our homes energy-efficient.
