Insulated concrete forms ICF (two layers of rigid form insulation between which concrete is poured) shape the house structure and ensure a good thermal and acoustic insulation. Extensive use of glass allows the owners to enjoy beautiful surroundings and bring sunlight and heat inside.

The client showed an interest in energy efficiency and sustainable design. These goals guided the entire house design process. The modern house uses the insulation on both the interior and exterior creating a very efficient and airtight wall system.
