Architects LETH & GORI begin the description of this Brick House with the question what if a house can last at least five generations instead of two? The interesting fact is that Brick House has two main objectives; to create a house which is maintenance free for 50 years; and to create a house with a life span of minimum 150 years. Oh hey now, that‘s the plan!
They are creating sustainable houses with respect to historic houses which showed and proved that they won the battle against time and had low impact on the environment.
There is a plan to build six sustainable houses with a low CO2 footprint in Nyborg, Denmark. Chasing for durability LETH & GORI will use clay bricks, which are strong and also have the ability to breathe. One of the architects – Gori said: “This is an old-school kind of building that requires craftsmanship on site. You feel that the Brick House has been touched by human hands.”
