He looks quite modest.
The most prestigious architectural award for best building, which is annually awarded by the Royal Institute of British architects (RIBA) in 2018 was awarded the house in the forest – Loxid house (Lochside House). Taking into account fashion trends, cultivating sustainability and autonomy, the project really deserves high praise. But from the point of view of design thinking and creativity – the house is slightly puzzling.
Very modest and unpretentious externally residential building-workshop, but with a very complex energy-saving systems developed by the British Office HaysomWardMiller Architects for a ceramic artist from London.
This unusual house was built on the edge of the wild woods, far from civilization on the picturesque shores of a Scottish lake. This complicates the construction, because everything had to be done manually due to the fact that the heavy construction equipment just could not get here. But for eight years, working closely with the customer, they were able to finish this special project.
In fact, it is three of the object, which was covered with paneling made of baked Scottish larch, with it not only the curtain wall, but the roof of all buildings.
In order for the housing was warm, vysokopoligonalnye installed inside a prefabricated SIP panel. Moreover, it is environmentally friendly material, but they allowed us to minimize the time and costs of transportation of building materials, thus speeding up the process of creating a home.
In order to protect such an unusual complex from water and wind, was erected by the stone fence with the use of special technology without the use of cement mortar.
Such extraordinary measures were applied in order to nothing to disrupt the eco-system of the forest and seamlessly integrate it with the living room. This circumstance has led such an extraordinary project to win in such a prestigious competition.
Due to the fact that the customer (now the owner of best of British at home!) wished to have a house completely independent team HaysomWardMiller Architects had to work hard to implement these systems are so remote from civilization housing.
In the first place was equipped with solar panels, allowing to build faster. Thanks to the installation managed to connect special ventilation system and heat recovery, and installation, allowing to dispose of all sewage, without causing absolutely no harm to the environment.
And in order to provide residents with drinking water, drilled artesian wells.
So using the natural elements, the sun and underground water, managed to create quite a modern comfortable environment for living away from civilization. On the work of such practical and high-tech installations, you can find useful information on the pages Novate.ru.
Modesty and simplicity is the main style of interior design of residential complex (Lochside House, UK).
That’s why this unique Studio apartment is located on the edge of the forest, and was praised by the RIBA judges, because at this stage such projects deserve special attention.
An Autonomous eco-homes, well integrated in the overall landscape, becomes a fashionable trend in modern construction.
Even if these houses look very modest and pretty clumsy, posing no artistic value, they still become victorious.
