Wooden House

Society Interiors - - GREEN NEWS -

Am­s­ter­dam-based Up­front Ar­chi­tects have teamed up with com­pa­nies WHD In­terieur­bouw and Zwarthout to cre­ate a day­light wooden hol­i­day home on stilts, which is lo­cated in Gulpen-Wit­tem mu­nic­i­pal­ity, south­east Nether­lands. The house is made with scorched-woods pan­els us­ing tra­di­tional Ja­panese build­ing tech­nique ‘Shou-Sugi-Ban’ which means fire-re­sis­tant. The small cosy house has stun­ning views of the river and the sur­round­ing coun­try­side. The home is de­signed with the glass façades to let the sun­light in and op­ti­mize the home’s ori­en­ta­tion on the site. The struc­ture also has a large ter­race to sit and en­joy the land­scape. As the area is con­stantly threat­ened with flood­ing, the ar­chi­tects raised the house higher form the ground onto poles con­structed with lo­cal trees. This house has sus­tain­able fea­tures like waste wa­ter pu­rifi­ca­tion, un­der­ground ven­ti­la­tion pipes, so­lar pan­els and thick in­su­la­tion.
