The sustainable principles of the architectural firm shine through nicely in this design. The prefab dwelling unit is made from materials that can be recycled, are hypoallergenic, and sourced from forests that are regulated through a forest stewardship model. The design allows for maximized connectivity to the outdoors through large openings, and the building is naturally ventilated. A layer of 12cm thick thermal insulation also helps to regulate the building’s indoor temperature. – inhabitant.com wrote
