Sustainable building: Texas-based architecture highlights a very low footprint
A building with a low carbon footprint to create, today's most architects and builders are seen as part of their building cultural responsibility. No easy task, which may need to be built further, must be taken into account. A design made from recyclable or recycled materials, an ecologically meaningful energy system and rainwater storage are the absolute must.
The architects of 5G Studio Collaborative worked on it in the year 2017, to build a single-family home resource-saving and intimate with nature. They have combined your experience with modern building methods and transformed the wishes of the builders into a climate-neutral house. Modern architecture is awarded with the Design Award 2017. We are presenting a project from the USA, which aims to deliver smart energy- and water-saving solutions.
Sustainable building: The good dawn saves energy
This family home is located near a Texas nature reserve. The builders love to inspire the idyllic location and commission the architects with the task of designing a house and planning a garden that harmoniously blends into the landscape. This creates a unique building with a flat roof that offers the best conditions, saving energy and water. The outer range may be naturally formed. The garden is planted with native grasses, perennials and trees and in the backyard the residents have a greenhouse with a greenhouse. All plants are well-lit, can come out with little water and thrive without heat and frost. They also care about a good space climate. In the summer, the tall trees throw cool shadows on the house, in the winter, the high shrubs provide wind protection.
If you want to build sustainably, you should consider what materials you want to get. Instead of embarrassing a garden path made of concrete, the builders chose the example for gravel. The material reads through the rainwater and is best suited for dry areas. More rainwater storage on the roof ensures efficient garden irrigation. Thanks to the tank systems, drinking water consumption is kept at the minimum even in the summer months. The southern house facade is planted with climbing plants. They offer cooling in the summer and can improve the air quality in the rooms.
Not only the facade is only made with recyclable materials. Also included were recycled materials for disposal. In order to save energy and reduce heat losses during the winter months, the house is indoors and outdoors. All rooms have more floor-like windows and sliding glass doors. So even the large residential area can be well ventilated. The large glass fronts and the skylights let plenty of sunlight into the interior space of the day. Energy-saving ceiling lights and dimmable pendant lights provide for well-lit spaces in the evening.
Sustainable construction: Functional and stylish design
The house façade may look plain, within which the house emerges as a modern minimalist beauty with exotic touch. The white walls and the dark wood flooring provide the perfect background for the chic furniture. There are more zones in the residential area, depending on the function. A spacious kitchen with kitchen island, a comfortable seating area in front of the TV and a lounge area right next to the window round off the living program. Seamlessly connected to the living room, the terrace with a view to the garden. It loads a modular sofa and a chair with chairs for blurring in the outdoors. All other rooms were a cabinet, two bedrooms and two guest rooms have a beautiful view of the garden. Join us on a virtual tour of all spaces.
