swiss architects diethelm & spillmann recently completed passivhaus vogel in mostelberg, switzerland. the location of the passivhaus affords views of the surrounding mountainous landscape. the living area is raised above the ground and rests on an unheated base, which accommodates the garage and cellar spaces. since building regulations only allowed a two-story structure, the house extends horizontally, creating its characteristic projection. in the interior, silver coated plaster is combined with unrefined wooden panels made from larch wood. outside, a layer of darkly varnished wooden cladding envelopes the structure, which is to appear in its form as a single roof. the roof is fully fitted with photovoltaic an solar panels.

  • To JAH, Perhaps you should find out what is Swiss ‘Passivhaus’ before scribble down your comments without thinking.

  • Impressive. I love the simplicity shown here. It looks very modest but very functional.

  • A passive house with a two-car garage, one and a half bedrooms, ‘silver-coated plaster’, several hundred square meters of space and a large rambling lot. What’s wrong with this picture?
