An award-winning Salt & Water studio presents the project of a family home planned for construction in Ruma, Serbia. Both the main building and the two additional objects on the lot were designed according to the energy efficiency parameters (B category). Respecting the basic parameters of the location, the house is oriented towards the south with the large glass surfaces on its front side. Windows and glass doors have triple glazing that provides the minimal heat loss (Alumil S650). The heating is produced by the geothermal heat pumps that use electricity and the earth’s thermal energy for an ecological heating system.

The parcel interested by the intervention is occupied by a small 1970’s warehouse used as a utensils’ depot. A first intervention turned it into a commercial space for the sale of products complementing bathroom furniture; a second intervention amplifies the volume characterized by a big covering vault which repeats the construction system and faces it with a mimesis attitude.

The Wedge House in Athens, Greece by schema architecture & engineering

 
August 16th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Schema Architecture & Engineering

The Wedge house is a custom-built single family home located in the northern suburbs of Athens, in the mountainous and full of pine trees area of Penteli, named Drafi. The site is quite distinctive and has many challenging features. The main complexity is the steep terrain with an almost 20-meter-height-difference from one side of the site to the other. The virtually vertical cliffs on both edges made access very difficult, so when a mild inclined surface appeared in the middle of the site it was quite inevitable that the house would be situated there.
