We are open to receive projects from all around the world, regardless of their dimension or typology. Please send us high quality photos (indicating their authors), drawings and descriptive texts in English to our Marketing e-mail - It will be our pleasure to help spreading new Architecture concepts and ideas.

House under the oaks

"The house under the oaks is a low budget passive house concept developed for an Austrian family. With a minimum footprint and a wide outstretching wooden box on six columns it offers a living area of about 100 m2. The whole structure was done in prefabricated timber with all ecological wood wool insulation of up to 60 cm. The interior is done all in local wood as well with a simple white pigmented oil cover. A heat pump with ground collector, a controlled ventilation system with heat exchange and photovoltaic panels on the roof offer a perfect energy concept with a minimum of required external energy – which is provided by eco electricity. Like this it is a new prototype for affordable living on minimal energy standard in Austria."

House J-T, Hörbranz

"The two-floor wooden construction lies directly above a yard with an roofed entrance area which curves in an abrupt slope. The circumferential and vertical silver fir facade not only serves as a filter, but also almost imperceptibly directs views to the carefully selected outlooks.The narrow, slightly and both-sidely bent ground plan follows both the course of the road and slightly bends the garden side towards the south.The plan is developed around the central staircase connected with an infrastructure complex, containing a kitchen, bathrooms and a storage room. The energy concept is based on the passive house standard.  The low quantity of the remaining energy required for hot water processing and heating is being provided via district heating from the heat pump of the neighbouring house. A controlled and central ventilation system provides an optimal air quality and minimal heat losses.With a 5 kW photovoltaic plant on the rooftop the house generates nearly all the energy it needs and is therefore a close to zero energy building."

Laying-Out Hall Cemetery, Hörbranz

"The new Chapel of Rest is the center of the expanded Cemetery in Hörbranz in the 80ies.  The front yard is surrounded by a one-floor high hall and an elongated sitting bench connected with a fountain. The old weeping willow creates an oasis full of shade and tranquillity. The only light that is shed in the Chapel comes from a sole narrow overhead light emphasizing the continuous horizontal wood structure of the white-glazed lightweight concrete walls. It continues in the rough sawn oak-wood casing in the entrance area. A likewise newly put up earth-coloured tamped concrete wall creates here an end to the cemetery where it neighbours an elementary school at the same time serving as a flood protection."
