A spot for us and our visitors to escape the working anxiety and ordinary life, to locate an exceptional security, to come back to genuine once more, just to appreciate time, nature, perusing, eating… an uncommon area to offer a retreat off the regular life – that was our little dream to assemble. As we are both engineers, the expectation of our work was to demonstrate that the nature of a building is composed by his extents, materials and structures, not just by size.
The wooden house its just four meters wide, the region kitchen/eating, living and resting is open-arrangement and joined by stairs, every a large portion of a level over the other. We have picked a strong wood development for the external dividers and rooftop. Inside the divider we fabricated a mass of adobes, secured by dirt.
One goes into the house through the substantial wooden entryway, to get the visitor a sentiment the structure of the dividers. The kitchen and lounge area can be stretched out into the patio nursery in summer by opening the expansive collapsing sliding entryways on every side over the two free-hanging patios. Through this boundless glass territory one is sitting pretty much in nature. On the off chance that important defensive window ornaments can bear the cost of protection.
The living room is paradise for listening to music, watching movies, perusing, and getting a charge out of the flame and the mountains. By all climates one can look specifically on to the mountain “Spitzstein” through the extensive display window. The wood-smoldering stove transmits it’s glow – a solace crackling and the smell of wood fills the entire house. One step up, the bed watches straight out onto the Auerbach and can appreciate the late evening sun. The washroom is isolated by a pantry from the resting range.
The little exhibition over the lounge room it’s the unattached bathtub with a perspective of the sky. This territory makes comfortable perusing corner that can be utilized for unwinding after a hot shower or a long stroll on the outside air. The patio nursery can be shared and is a perfect spot to grill and unwind. Through the greenery enclosure entryway is straightforwardly on the Auerbach, which in summer offers wonderful‚ Badegumpen to chill in and in winter is ice-wonderland.
Concerning the development of the house, we utilized just materials we are completely persuaded. The roofs and the development of the rooftop are assembled by the same material as the dividers: strong wood. Every single outside divider are assembled by 16 cm thick strong wooden plates, inside we fabricated a dirt divider and inside we utilized likewise mud to mortar the dividers with its divider warming framework.
The entire house is warmed by this sort of imperceptible warming framework; furthermore in the lavatory we arranged additionally underfloor warming. A naturally controlled ventilation framework furnishes the house with outside air at all times. The lighting framework in the house is worked by typical switches. There is an advanced BUS System which additionally empowers viable operation with a remote or iPad. The uncomplex room structure incorporates a high innovation verging on undetectable, so that the house opens up to the visitor exceptionally straightforward.
Keeping in mind the end goal to attempt to lessen the private electrical utilization, every electrical circuit in the house are observed, so everybody has the chance to get an inclination for his own vitality use. The sun based boards on the rooftop are state of tiles. They create more vitality than the house itself requires, so it can likewise give power to the neighboring house. An attachment to charge an electrical auto has been introduced, a battery to store the power has been given, however not yet figured.
