Sod Roof House
Best Project of Private Residence
About the project
The main idea of the project is to create a guest house that will fit into the landscape while maintaining the visual integrity of the site.
The house is made of concrete, has an open floor plan and an inverted green roof. The roof blends in with the surrounding forest and the house seems to dissolve and mingle with the landscape. The forest facing side of the house features panoramic windows and an adjacent terrace. In winter, the sloped roof can be turned into a slide for sledding.
House area 120 sq.m.
