This system also provides the energy efficiency of the house.

To obtain the necessary amount of natural light in every room, a concept has been applied, which is often seen in old farmhouses in the region - the doors and windows are bricked and cut pragmatically, so that the facade of a mosaic of fantasy of old and new scars represents. Typological elements are reinterpreted throughout the house. Fireplace that is 6 feet tall, is the heart of the home. The front garden has been developed to connect the farm with outbuildings. The courtyard is a mosaic of shapes and materials pragmatic typology.
