The pie-shaped footprint is a departure from typical passivhaus building, which allows for an almost solarium effect on one side of the building and a generously wide living space on the other. The framing and interior wood cladding is from local forests, and air quality is taken care of by a careful selection of finishes and a heat recovery ventilator — the heart of passivhaus design. This well rounded and thoughtful design provides ample evidence that good green building is attainable and affordable if we set our mind to it.
