Modern Green House Design (Re-)Mixes New & Old


Environmentally low-impact though this house by Berg Design may be it is certainly a visually high-impact structure, filled with dynamic modern lines and contrasting contemporary materials that make quite a statement against its naturalistic surroundings.


Though you might not guess it at first glance, this house design was inspired by regional vernacular agricultural architecture – a modern reinterpretation of a local building typology, only much more contemporary and eco-friendly in its construction.


Green materials, systems and strategies include: radiant heat and geothermal cooling, heat-resistant exterior finishes and glass, ideal solar orientations, sustainable wood siding, energy star appliances, dual-flush toilets and vintage furniture and furnishings.
