Very interesting concept of a green house is built in Sweden. It’s a tiny house with a green closed yard. It is very unusual, but useful architecture. The greatest advantage is that it saves energy all year long and the house is warm.
The heating is a very important issue in the northern states, where winter months are very cold. Often people use electric, gas and wood heating, so heating costs are high. But they use different heat sources for back up if some of them quit working. Therefore, this idea of constructing a greenhouse around a little house is very smart and money saving.
This house is near Stockholm, owned by Granmar-Sacilotto family. It was renovated in this concept from an existing summer home with a greenhouse structure added around it covered by glass. Swedish architect Bengt Warne was the first one who came up with this innovation in the 1970s and was known as Naturhus or Naturehousing.
Marie Granmar and Charles Sacilotto who own this unique house, were impressed by the work of Warne and they built their house by his example several years ago. This project cost them around $84.000,00.
The first idea of the Naturhus concept was a creation of a home that would collect the sun, and produce energy, air and cleaning water. And the house of Marie and Charles follows these principles. They built centrifugal wastewater treatment system, which is filtered out by the plants and sent in the garden. The greenhouse successfully grows the gardening season and they can even grow figs or other Mediterranean plants.
The external space of the little house is possible to use all year long. The Naturhus has proven to be an amazing idea to keep the tiny house warm and is very suitable for northern climates.
