Green concept and eco sustainable home design ideas is all that we need in designing and building our own home. By applying this concept, we could make a beautiful space of living which also supports and make our environment to be a better place to live & heal the earth. For example Sustaibable Home Project named Casa Schierle belongs to Matthias Benz Architecture & Design and is located in a picturesque village near Munich, Germany. We really love the architecture and interior design and could not help seeing the beautiful indoor colour palette, the combination of fine white, green and wood elements. We found some attracting information about the sustainable features of the project too. Building development also includes the use of recycled materials and the inclusion of energy-saving concept. There are plans for solar panels and rainwater collectors in the future. beautiful scenery, wonderful architecture and energy sufficient houses an impressive association.[VIA]
The Rincon Bates House has been renovated by Studio27 Architecture and is end row house unit in Capitol Hill, Washington DC. The project furthers a continuing exploration in sustainable urban residential design. This project has a bio-based insulation, solar water heaters, plumbing fixtures and low flow of zero VOC finish. Ample daylight is supplied to the 1200 square foot home organized around a central atrium with skylight monitors.
The architects’ strategy stranded the dark, moldy interior with a feel of openness, both in plan and section, to make a more implicit series of connections between traditionally separated hierarchical programs. Studio 27 removed a section of the second level floor block to carve an emptiness through the middle of the house over the dining room, enabling shared light between all rooms, and presented operable skylights to make a performative row effect to control ventilation.. The second floor is divided into two suites, which are related with tubular steel and glass bridges which is more contrast with the existing weight of the stone.
