"This eco house wants to merge traditional and modern elements. Because of that, the idea of ​​combining a far overhanging roof with generous glass fronts emerged. Triple-glazed aluminium-clad wooden windows allow plenty of light into the house and give the residents a feeling of being part of the surrounding nature. A fireplace divides the living room into two open areas and creates romantic moments in winter."
