Large energy-efficient family house by Salt & Water studio, Serbia
Salt & Water design bureau's large family house, planned for a plot in Serbia, consists of a main building and two additional facilities. Large Alumil S650 triple-glazed panoramic windows are located on the southern side of the house, ensuring maximum heat retention. Geothermal heat pumps will be installed onsite, for an environmentally friendly heating system, while the cooling system will also be automated.
There are plans to use natural materials in the construction, such as Porotherm/Wienerberger stone and ceramic porous hollow blocks, used for partition walls and for the supporting structure. The materials’ excellent thermal conductivity indicators will save on the building’s heat insulation, while the splendid soundproofing will ensure low noise levels.
In addition to the residential property, a garage and separate summer kitchen with dining room and storeroom will appear on the plot, to meet fully accommodate the needs of a big family. A veranda with automatic lighting is located outside in front of the living room, while the facades also have movement sensors for external lighting.
The interior is contemporary with elements of luxury. The central space unites the kitchen, dining room and living room. A lobby, sports room, bedroom with spacious wardrobe and bathroom, storeroom and laundry room are also situated on the first floor. A snow-white staircase, bordered by glass panels, rises up to the ensuite master bedroom, three guest bedrooms and additional storage areas.
Natural materials in light shades are used primarily in the design. Certain components of the interior are custom-made, for example, the walls and floor in the corridor are encased in marble, an intricate carved wooden headboard in the master bedroom, and marble coffee table in the living room.
