The client for this project is a well-known advocate for sustainable architecture, and an innovator in home automization. This is to be his holiday home, and so he sought to work with Renz Pijnenborgh, who is a pioneer in Bio based and healthy architecture, to create a home that would create an innovative relationship between technology and nature.

The home was, for the most part, prefabricated in a factory in Germany from a design created by the architects in 3D BIM. In only three days, the home had been completely assembled. In addition to this, the home is fully self-sufficient and sustainable, as well as an amazing getaway for the client and his family. The home boasts a foundation of aerated concrete, a super insulated skin of hemp fibers, geothermal and mass heating, a solar roof that provides enough energy for the entire house, the cars, and some of the neighbors when the family is away, bio-based materials natural ventilation, and a state of the art home automation system.
