* Residential Architecture: L-House by Architects Collective

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 7 June 2012

Residential Architecture: L-House by Architects Collective: “..The deliberate and expressive building form establishes a dialogue with its surrounding landscape and feels light and airy. At the same time, the building achieved the very stringent local classification of an ultra-low-energy-house by using triple panel glassing. Additionally, the building’s orientation and its deep overhangs increased the comfort and lowered the energy costs for the inhabitants..Developing the form created a protected courtyard and the separate living and sleeping zones the family asked for. The generous glass areas create plenty of natural light and extend the living space visually into the garden and the hills behind it..”  Extensive triple glazing, natural light, traditionally inspired L-form, sustainability..
