What do you think a holiday home should have? Many would say: about a quiet, natural location, airiness and luxurious amenities? Then you are exactly right here. We have selected this living example so that the effect of open living spaces and light-filled surroundings can be fully integrated into the overall look of a residential building. In order to remind you at an early age of the upcoming holiday season, today we present you an excellent holiday home with far-reaching views of the nearby nature:
This quiet cottage with a simple design has 110 square meters of living space and consists of two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spacious kitchen. The magnificent view of the garden makes it a desirable retreat.
The flexible, spacious living space is characterized by sustainability and ease of care, says the architect Stephanie Horowitz. Cozy rooms invite both relaxation and creative work: the owner of the house is a writer.
Because of the predominantly cold weather in New England and the high heating costs, Horowitz emphasized the advantages of a passive house. The small building has very good thermal insulation and uses little heat energy ,
The innovative construction is provided with a traditional gable roof for this area. It is most evident in the kitchen, which together with the adjoining dining and living room form the center of the holiday home. In such a small building, the practical and flexible living space is a must.
Behind the side walls in bright red hides a fiber cement paneling. The unique façade made of cedar wood has turned into light gray due to the strong weather conditions.
Passive living means direct use of solar energy. The special glass windows face south and store solar energy. The insulation by wooden cladding creates an extremely well insulated building envelope. A passive house saves about 80% of heating energy compared to a normal household.
This number seems really enormous to us, as well as the chic comfort that prevails in all rooms. A family of seven lives in the single-storey house and offers a comfortable get-together. Here we see a cozy Family place to relax, work and being together.
