This cool modern large-house with low energy consumption in Luxembourg design by Steinmetz De Meyer Architects. This four storey house completed 2008. during the day, this house uses less energy because nearly all the room to get the light from the sun, so the room remains light and air circulation in the room also became more cool and fresh.
The Modern Large-House use white color enhances the abstract nature of this building; bays windows and dark wood panels contrast with the whiteness (brightness) of the solid volumes and give full expression to this composition very daring among the neighboring houses in a row. Similarly, the interior spaces also overlap between them, here are the areas of movement and life stages and among them who are concerned. The stay on the ground floor and is open on two levels to allow interaction with the desktop and the parents of first floor rooms.
These Modern Large-House interactions of the facades and interior spaces are complemented by side garden generous openings formed very large glass walls: green space with the pool become a natural extension of living spaces.An outdoor courtyard on the ground floor, fitted between the dining room and living room, generates a very strong interpenetration between the inside and outside: the garden with its swimming pool and wooden decks return here in the house! This courtyard surrounded by a portico and provided with a velum is seen depending on the closing or opening sliding windows as an outdoor space that is part of the garden, or as an interior integral part of the house!
Modern Large-House was able to integrate the principles of building low energy consumption in a volumetric composition complex and daring, which maximizes the openings to the south and west and favors a more massive composition north and east , while advancing a writing very consistent and relevant today.
