A Passive House In Moscow's Periphery Blends Into Woodlands With Green Roof

A Passive House In Moscow's Periphery Blends Into Woodlands With Green Roof

 

The cottage - Hill House was completed in 2018 by Russian architecture company Snegiri Architects as a "passive house," with the capacity to conserve 90 percent more energy than a typical home owing to a little technical know-how. 

 

 

 

The exterior is constructed of darker larch wood that has been soaked with natural flax oil to aid in passive insulation. The foundation of the house integrates Swedish plate technology, which helps to winterize it, making the construction virtually cold-proof and frost-resistant.

 

 

 

The majority of the structure's energy-saving windows and doors are on the sunny side of the property, which helps to keep the residence warm in the northern clime. The sliding doors lead to a large patio, which floods the internal areas with light.

 

 

 

Finally, the house is insulated with cold-proof mineral wool and coated with flax-oil-saturated larix wood.
