This three story sustainable green building was built by utilizing locally sourced timber.The exterior has been left to be unfinished to provide raw, natural feeling, and creating a good mixing to the surroundings. Passive solar design is applied to provide maximum solar gain and control the temperature of the house. There are overhangs that will provide protection when the sun light is to harsh, while driving the sun light to provide heat on winter. The control of the temperature is done by the phase change panels which act as heat absorber on daylight time, and release the heat at night.

Solar energy is also utilized for the sustainable energy by the solar photovoltaic panels installed on the roof top. For cooking, there is a wood burning stove. South facade has a lot of windows to maximize the natural daylighting.

With its simple and natural design this sustainable design will not only provide high sustainability, but also provide a good mixture to the natural and beautiful environment surrounded.
