SUPER LOW ENERGY ENVELOPE - OPTION A
TURN KEY - OPTION B
The KitHaus-4 is a state of the art low carbon and low energy home.
Exterior: The simple shape of this modular house is a critical design feature, it is paramount in creating a super energy-efficient home, minimising the surface to volume ratio of the building. To maintain summer comfort, avoiding over heating and future proofing against the rise in global temperatures, shading has been added in a special way which allows sunlight to warm the home in winter when the sun is lower in the sky.
Indoors: Inside the home, the ground floor has an open plan kitchen, dining and living that connects with the garden through a pair of sliding doors to the outside. When designing our homes, we paid close attention to the relationship between indoors and outdoors. On the ground floor an open plan layout was chosen. This meant that the views from the kitchen, dining and living area could be enjoyed, and the living areas are flooded with natural light and warmth from the sun on the south elevation.
The north side of the house is always shaded so we
designed small windows, engineered to prevent heat loss. They windows still providing ample light to the utility and washroom facilities, areas of the house we spend least time in. Using the National Space Standards the general layout has been developed to meet Accessible and Adaptable Dwellings standards, making the homes generous and well thought through. The ground floor WC has been designed to accommodate showering facilities for families that would find this useful.
The home has generous sized bedrooms.
