The house in passive house quality is a redensification of an existing single-family house in the district Fluh/Dornbirn.
The difficulty was to place the new building structure in such a way that it would enhance the qualities of the property without disadvantageous to the existing house. The exterior areas were integrated into the clear cubic structure in the form of incisions. In addition to the very energy-efficient shell, value was placed on an ecological construction method.
The generosity and the connection of cooking/eating to living was created by a partially two-storey cooking area.
Solid wood construction with cross laminated timber elements, wood wool insulation and shingle facade. Three-layer bitumen roof with gravel covering.
Heat pump with deep drilling and in a second step a photovoltaic system is installed.
Compaction due to an additional new construction of a single-family house on a slope
