Brad Pitt has teamed up with a team of architects to create a storm-resistant home in Queens.
The 49-year-old actor’s “Make it Right” charity will build a $50,000 house in the area, which was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy last October.
The house of choice, called Resilient House, was the winner in a design competition courtesy of the American Institute of Architects and Architecture for Humanity.
The house, designed by Toronto architects Sunstainable.TO, features a split roof that creates a row of windows to keep the house bright and warm year-round; it needs almost no heating or cooling.
Pitt’s charity has provided the funding necessary to create the home.
