House that Opens Up to the Sun by Stempel & Tesar Architekti
Welcome to House that Opens up to the Sun, a beautiful passive house located in Malé Kyšice, Czech Republic. Designed by Stempel & Tesar Architekti in 2022, this building is a perfect example of sustainable architecture, as it uses renewable materials to keep the energy consumption to a minimum.
This house combines a contemporary design style with elements of traditional architecture, with exposed concrete blocks and wooden elements in both interior and exterior. Its location near the Křivoklát woods allows the building to open up to the sun and draw in its energy, reducing heating costs in the winter months. The building also knows how to keep from overheating, thanks to its overhanging roof and horizontal shading. In addition, a small pond optimizes the use of rainwater for the garden, and an insulated sandwich wall aids in the natural accumulation of warmth. With its sustainable approach to both water and air, this house provides a truly unique living experience.
