Designed as a low energy home, the house has a timeless feel and is meant to impact lightly on the landscape. Particular attention has given to orientation, light, spatial quality, ventilation, functional layout, etc. It is also a home that can grow with time. The client can add more modules, rooms and pods. All the finishes, both interior and exterior are optional, as to fit any type of budget or environment. Thick thermal insulation, triple glazed windows and adequate equipments make this house a BER A1rating, the highest energy efficiency rating possible which helps save on running costs.
