This green home building‘s is made from sustainable materials, woods. The choice of using wooden material as dominant material for this prefab sustainable house is a good point as wooden materials can provide naturalistic feelings for the house, especially if the house is located near or on a natural open site.

The facade is designed to have wooden strips accent. The form is very simple, helps to create relax situation. The slightly sloping roof with charcoal planks and the clerestory windows provide access of natural sunlight to the interior. The system also provides natural ventilation for the house.  The roof’s overhang also provides a protection for over exposed sunlight, beside limited usage of conventional windows. The perforated parts of the roof support the natural ventilation system also.

An open terrace can be used for outdoor activities, such as dining. A long the house’s perimeter, a covered veranda is also available for outdoor activities.
