Nearly Zero Energy House by Caraa | A Family house

About from the Architect “The family house is a compact  low-energy single-level building with the flat roof.  The aim was to create a low closed object – a ring-like building set in the landscape without disturbing the beautiful hilly and woody surrounding panoramas. As the site area is spacious, we wanted to create an intimate space for every thinkable form of the life of this special family. We designed an elliptic-shape house with an interior open atrium. The ellipse is situated in the site mass center, with the orientation allowing the optimum use of sun and shape. The internal layout is strictly orthogonal. The house is wheelchair accessible.  The garage represents a volume „cut out“ of the house atrium and put nearby in the garden. The garden remains natural with minimum landscaping.” – via Archdaily
