75 SqM Summer Home3:47 PM
Very often, when discussing green architecture we neglect to mention the greenest thing we can do - which is build less. This home manages to build small (smaller footprint means less embodied energy and future energy use), while also integrating some very green ideas. The 37mm thick walls create a thermal mass that keeps the house cool and warm depending on the time of year. Added to that are solar panels and triple paned windows, all decreasing the draw of energy off of the grid.
But really, for me, one of the big draws is the spare, yet eclectic - totally Scandinavian - interior design!
If anyone knows the website of the architect Torbjörn Hoeg, I'd love to check out more work!
