The sustainable building was design completely opened to the surroundings, providing more natural sun daylighting for entire rooms, and good natural ventilation. The construction is elevated to protect it from flood. Sustainable building materials were used, such as sustainably- sourced timber for the exoskeleton,  low E glass to provide good insulation. Fireplace is only used when needed to provide ambience.
