Zero Energy House Design Blends Fashion and Function

This zero energy house design by German architects AMUNT stands out as much for its striking exterior as for its smart inner workings. This contemporary style home, designed for two adults and four kids (a full house indeed!) satisfies the owners’ desire for both fashion and function. Made mainly of wood, chosen both for its energy- and cost-efficient qualities, this sustainable house features three staggered floors with every living space designed to allow for multi-purpose use – yet another efficient element in this smart design! Natural-finish wood on floors, ceilings and walls adds a rustic yet refined aesthetic. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a glass wall facade promote passive solar heating and day-lighting throughout. This courtyard home plan includes a great outdoor entertaining area complete with an alfresco kitchen and barbecue area! AMUNT
