Architect: KAGER HOUSE
They decided to construct the Vita Nova Edition house, which embodies the elegance and presents surpluses in the system of wood-glass construction. Due to glazing of the entire façade and facades, it is made for the suburbs, where it can stand out in full beauty on big enough land.
Calm neutral colours on the outside of the house emphasize its elegance and tranquillity, while transparent glass surfaces connect it to the surroundings. The house constructed of basic wood, glass and diffusion-open materials is complemented by the installation of wooden furniture made of glued spruce timber with three-layer glazing, which further enriches the house with its appearance and energy saving quality. Built-in external blinds and shades also contribute to greater comfort and thermal stability, enabling partial darkening of rooms and protection against direct sunlight rays. By varying the inclinations of these lamellas, the amount of light coming in can be adjusted. Due to possibility of overheating the house during hot summer months, the roof is constructed with wooden fibre insulation materials that offer great protection of overheating of the house.
"The proud owners have thus entrusted us with their experience of living in Vita Nova: “Every day, when we come home, it’s like going on vacation. The house feels open, like it is a breathing living being. The comfort of our home and its surroundings gives us tranquillity and relaxation.”"
Openness, ease of living, freedom
The central space represents connection between its residents and the premises in the house. It also connects the remaining parts of the house in a horizontal and vertical direction. In the horizontal direction, it connects them by combining the spaces into a common harmonic unit, and in the vertical direction, it combines them with an open staircase and a gallery. By combining the rooms into a single open space, a large volume is created, which gives a pleasant and quality feeling of living, as well as receives more natural sunlight throughout the day.
Staying in a bright and airy space without obstacles and limitations is very pleasant and free. It gives us a sense of peace and freedom which we need at this rapid pace of life. A sophisticated sense of beauty and quality of living was created by the owners with the cooperation of experts from the Interrier Showroom, where they chose kitchen and ceramics, whereas the lighting design was provided by KSL Studio.
Glass houses represent a huge energy potential
Glass houses represent a huge energy potential, but certain legalities need to be taken into account while constructing them. The translucent wrapper allows the flow of free solar energy, greater isolation and the transmission of sunlight, which even increases the importance of this factor. The problem could only be warming due to sunlight and overheating of the house, but this problem can be easily resolved by consistent shading with external shades and blinds. If the house is heated by
