Autonomous house in the Carpathians by Alexei Breus

The architects of architectural bureau of Alexei Breus try to arrange the building as organically as possible in the landscape. You can say that eventually the house grows out of the earth, like a plant.
Particularly interesting is the project “Mushroom House” in the Carpathians near the very beautiful Lake Sinevir and the Natural Park. The main goal of this project was to create a completely autonomous house from communication. It was very important because on the hill, where cottage is located, protected plant species grow. So, the landscape was completely preserved. The architects supplied the house with solar panels, the lighting is completely diode, an alternative energy source is a diesel generator, and the house is heated by wood. The cottage has a large area of glass walls, and on the other side is protected from the cold by a natural hill.
