Eco, self-sustainable, green house built in a remote, natural mountain site. The main horizontal topography-volume is partially masked by a sloping green roof and mineral, gabion wall cladding and two traditional barn-like structures are growing from this to break and articulate the huge mass of the construction. The materials and shapes were chosen to blend in the stunning scenery. The building produces and stores most of its energy demands but it isn’t completely off the grid, en electrical connection is made for very cold and cloudy days as a backup system.
+ natural building materials experience, demanding and confiding clients, straightforward project managemenet and construction process
– very big building with lots of complicated details, during the construction some compromises were made to also use some more common, less eco materials
