Measuring 1,000 square feet, the House Under the Oaks is a wide wooden box overlooking a luscious landscape. Its structure was made from prefab FSC timber and assembled on site, reducing waste. Insulated with natural wood to protect against really cold weather, the home also features a wood patio and balcony for outdoor enjoyment during summer.

The Austrian home‘s interiors were built from local wood painted with a simple white-pigmented oil. Photovoltaic panels on the roof and a heat pump with a ground collector power this passive dwelling. A controlled ventilation system with heat exchange provides fresh air, reducing heating (and cooling) requirements, while saving energy and money.
