The cow hotel uses minimal land by using vertical space and is fully self-sustaining. Powered by solar and wind energy harnessed from a maximum advantage position high on the building, the multistory ‘cow hotel’ has fields for grazing layered like a multistory car park which the cows revolve through during daytime as well as sleeping space below ground. Rainwater irrigates the grass levels and provides drinking water for the cows. The cow waste is collected and used as both fertilizer for the grass levels and fuel through a methane conversion unit in the building.
