The house for Belgium architect Lieselotte Steurbaut is a wooden house constructed in only 6 months, with a budget of 1.140 euro/m2 and a monthly gas and electricity bill of 10 euros. The house in every way is a fine example of green residential where energy efficiency, reducing ecological footprint is the priority.
Everywhere we heard & knew that constructing a green building will be more expensive than a conventional building. But the Passive House is an answer to the challenge of an 'economic house'.
Build on a small plot, this compact size, relatively close-looking cube house, which is perpendicular to the south from a big bite taken and windows provided, that act as the 'radiator' for the house. A timber frame, with ThermoWood wall paneling, wood joinery, and a complete interior finishing in OSB (Oriented strand board).
Reduced pipe lengths for ventilation, water, gas, electricity provides a simple technical installation. All rooms were place together to reduced the used on walls which leave plenty of free space for creativity and family gathering.
