A “green” home that has no air conditioning — thanks to an architectural design that aids cooling — has hit the market, and the heat wave in Los Angeles is sure to test its efficiency.

The 5,243-square-foot home on Georgina Avenue in Santa Monica was designed by architect couple Buzz Yudell and Tina Beebe, the Los Angeles Times reported.

It has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, centered around a two-story living room. The home previously sold for $6.8 million in 2015, property records show.

The Malibu-based couple designed the home as a “net zero home,” meaning it produces nearly all the energy it consumes and should have a zero energy bill. Amenities at the modern estate include translucent canopies that light up the constellations at night, EnergyStar appliances, LED lighting and Pholtovoltaic panels that cut back on carbon dioxide emissions, according to marketing materials.
