Boguslaw Barnas completes cascading white Eco House in Poland

Polish architect Boguslaw Barnas has completed cascading white residential building in South Poland. Boguslaw Barnas' sustainable house is located in the protected landscape area Nature 2000, surrounded by beech and oak forests, horse riding meadows and agricultural lands.

In the design approach, the architect's analyses are based on a different environmental factors that give the final form of the project including; analysis of functional plan – division into day, night, technical and working zones, analysis of solar radiation – to optimize solar gain and to create interiors with proper natural light, analysis of exterior views  and plot shape – to take the most advantage of the house location and building technology to be used for the building.

The house in not huge, but there is a spacious day zone inside, that is open up to 5 m height. Its main pride is a conrete wall and bearing mounting stairs. The building is designed in way to optimize the energy gain and loss. Sustainability of the house comes not only from unique technology but also out of architectural form and shape that harmonizes with nature.

Simulations of the sun positions in different periods of a year allowed to create proper arrangement of the house layout and glass partition in way to gain heat in winter and to reduce overwheating in summer. Energy efficient Izodom technology was used to minimize heat loss.
