Abstract : Due to the abrupt rise in population, the demand for food and energy has increased tremendously. The current challenge is to meet all these demands in future. To tackle the problems of energy crisis and food adulteration, the only solution is to become self-reliant in all means. The spectacular technological innovations in the areas of information and communication have aided to design this lifestyle. This paper delivers the concept of building self sufficient smart homes by coupling the areas of i-energy, aquaponics and vertical farming. Also, provides a scope for developing self-sufficient homes in Kerala. This paper elucidates the architectural design perspective of a house, which is bound to satisfy all the basic needs and encourages each individual to turn to a prosumer.
