Hill House’s roof is green literally – with a live “carpet” of plants: stonecrop and dwarf plants such as wild camomile.

This project can undoubtedly be called a “smart passive house”. Terrace and most windows and rooms are oriented to the sun side, getting as much sun as possible. Building is equipped with energy-saving windows, ventilation system with air recuperation, and is completely winterized: foundation with cold-proof Swedish plate, carcass with monolith, with cold-proof mineral wool covered with larix wood saturated in natural flax oil.
