Stuttgart, Germany’s Werner Sobek completed this lovely Haus D10 contemporary home back in 2011 and so here is a nice look at it. The single-story home is located in the town of Biberach an der Riss in Germany. Check out what the architects behind the home have to say about it:
Generously designed glazing serves to provide a spatial enclosure. Protected by an extensively projecting flat roof a generously sized patio encircling the house serves to unite the indoor space with the outdoor space. Access to the building is also gained via this patio.
The living areas are located on the ground floor, whilst the ancillary rooms are housed in the basement. The building is adjoined on the north side by a double-garage, which can be accessed directly from the basement. A stairway in the living room provides access inside the house.
The energy concept guarantees that all of the energy required to run the building is gained from regenerative sources. A geothermal energy system and a highly-efficient heat pump provide the energy required to produce warm water and meet heating and cooling needs. The entire surface of the roof is fitted with a photovoltaic system that generates more power on an annual average than the building consumes.
