The Rose House, situated in Venice, was designed by duArchitects to be open, ethereal, and as inexperienced as attainable.
Engineered with a hybrid metal/wooden structural system, the house is 2 flooring of finances-pleasant supplies. According to the architect, “the bottom flooring is a elegant concrete slab with a hydronic radiant heating system. The second flooring (bedrooms) is wooden framed with hardwood flooring. The ceilings are tough-sawn redwood. The roof has a 4kw photovoltaic electrical system that gives a lot of the electrical energy wanted to energy the house.”
