House R 128 designed by architects Werner Sobek, it’s furutistic single family modern and sustainable house design. Location at Römerstrasse 128 in Stuttgart Germany. Building Type this project is Small House and Construction System with steel frame and structural glass facade .
Some information from wikipedia: The name of the house is derived from its location at Römerstrasse 128, which is a small and steep piece of land at the edge of the vale of Stuttgart. When the house was built, it was paid a great amount of attention in the architectural world. The building is shaped like a cube, has four levels and is wrapped by a glass shield. All components can be segregated for recycling. There are no walls or closed rooms (apart from the bathrooms) and only few pieces of furniture. The transparency is supposed to create the impression that one lives outdoors exposed to nature. Due to its passive solar architecture with triple-glazed walls, the house needs no energy for heating. Seasonal temperature shifts are balanced by a seasonal thermal store. Electricity is generated by solar cells. Every item in the house is computer-controlled.
House R 128 by the architects at Werner Sobek brings the best of both worlds to the table. Rising four storeys in Stuttgart, Germany, this modern glass edifice has nothing to hide. The see-through house features a facade of triple-glazed windows that allow natural light to filter through and flood every room inside. The home’s front facade features photovoltaic panels that power the house and light it up when the sun goes down. Adding to its amazing sustainable features, the house also boasts geothermal energy and cooling. The modern modular design – including its wooden floor and facade – is designed for easy assembly and dismantling, so not only is this innovative house off-the-grid, it’s also reusable, and completely recyclable! Accessible by a bridge above the kitchen and dining room, the 2,706-sq.-ft. home offers a warm welcome with a contemporary edge. Minimal style is king at House R 128, which has no interior walls, and a few modern pieces that characterize the home’s open-concept living areas.
