Residential Architecture: Hanare House by Schemata Architecture Office: “..the structure is built around a central rock formation which extends upwards, and is elevated off the ground, perched upon a metal support system of pilotis to accommodate this natural obstruction. because of its positioning, within the landscape ‘hanare’ appears as if it is a castle sitting upon a hill..incorporates ecologically sustainable strategies to maintain and function the house. such features include a 2 meter long eaves for shading the interior space from the western sun, using low-E glass windows to control heat transfer into the home and wooden sash for insulation, as well the presence of a trombe wall which faces the sun to absorb natural energy to power the dwelling..”  Sustainability, wood, steel, abundant glazing and views, natural light..
