Provided as a second home for the project owner, this unused hut in the center of the village was slated for demolition. Original frame of the building has been preserved. This small house has three floors – the ground floor which also has a small balcony, the second floor which contains of two bedrooms and a bathroom and a basement that serves as a play area for children.
Originally, the hut had only one door but architects embedded windows into the log walls in order to let the daylight inside the place. However, they reduced the impact of facade change by choosing window frames a dark color that is close to the aged wood.
The reason of separating the ground floor was to protect the house from rodents. It also allows the basement to enjoy natural light through the skylight and a glazed staircase. The heat is provided by a geothermal heat pump with a complement of solar collectors.
