The exterior of this sustainable green building is dominated with black color to make a good blend with the surrounding forest. The dark color also makes the house disappear totally when seen from the lake. It has flat roof design.

The interior of this green architecture design is dominated with white color, very contrast compared to the exterior. This will help the reflection of sun light through the entire space. Most of the furniture are handmade or from reuse furniture. Wood materials are dominated, where spruce is for the ceilings and walls, pine is for the floors. They are finished with a Wood Wax Finish in white from Osmo.

Each corner of this sustainable construction is completed with large windows which will encourage the access of view and sun light. The concept of the space is open and defined at the same time. Each  wing will cover the bedroom, a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen. A separated building houses wood-fired sauna and bathroom.

Some sustainable features are provided for this eco construction. This house is powered by some alternative energy sources, such as sun (via solar panels) for electricity, wood (via wood fireplace) for heating, There is no running water, the water is from what the available stock on-site. Great insulation provides a good protection from heat losses. Vegetable and herbs are cultivated on-site, and used for food sources, besides the fish caught from the lake.

This eco friendly construction will provide a fantastic experience of enjoying natural life.
