Sumit Singhal loves modern architecture. He comes from a family of builders who have built more than 20 projects in the last ten years near Delhi in India. He has recently started writing about the architectural projects that catch his imagination.
House BFW in Haag am Hausruck, Austria by [tp3] architekten

The ground floor is accessible directly above this zone. Although the north façade has a pitched roof, the actual separation of each design theme is highlighted by a house with a pent roof in front of the southern façade. This means that the building also looks like two different buildings from the two opposite sides. This is not visible in terms of the overall context, however, and basically refutes the configuration of the layout. This does not in any way reveal that the roof landscape may be configured differently.
The living areas are incorporated in the ground floor in a clear expression of form and have a special connection with the outdoors due to the interior courtyard. The private areas are located on the first floor and are arranged towards the south. The cladding of the passive house is a wooden construction, including cladding with a spruce formwork (with rear ventilation). The remaining heat and the hot water are produced using a heat pump with deep drilling.
The house requires 14 kWh/m²a and is equipped with controlled living space ventilation. This means the ensemble of buildings constructed on the plot merges into a building which responds optimally to the requirements and needs of the owner-builders.
Profile of [tp3] architekten Ever since [tp3] architects were founded, we have been working on both the idea and implementation of sustainable building concepts. The creation of a symbiosis between ecological, social, economic and aesthetic aspects, as well as energy-optimised façade and ground plan typologies represent a processing criterion that goes without saying. The location, contents and form merge together as a matter of course to create one unit. We view urban, economic and technical parameters as being catalysts for new ideas and unconventional solutions, with the location of the building project and the requirement profile being the starting point of our consideration. Sustainability, passive house concepts, ecological designs, lifecycle considerations and conserving resources are not simply catchphrases, they are an integral component of our architectural work.
We aren’t interested in looking for architecture in expressionist experiments; our goal is to create a dense atmosphere using materials, light, structure, colour etc., and to ensure the economical use of our environment. Our architectural office sees itself as being a service provider with a wide range of services which we are able to offer our clients. We function as partners and client representatives for our contractors and can guarantee you optimum quality for your project from both a technical, economical and architectural point of view.
We can offer all planning work from the preliminary draft, to the draft, to the application planning, the site and detailed planning, the cost determination, etc., as well as the local construction supervision for all building projects, both for renovation work and new build, in order to optimise the construction sequence and the production costs. Our range of services is completed by urban planning studies and construction plans as well as interior design and furniture design.
