Today we are going to explore a beautiful energy-efficient house – with plans – designed by architects HomeKONCEPT.
This modern, one-storey home features a very comfortable, well-designed and functional layout. As we explore the outside, you will see how the facade and the garden work in harmony. The large glass windows and doors allow sunlight to stream into the interior spaces.
While we won't get a chance to explore the interior spaces, this 1170 square foot home is made up of an open plan living space, with a kitchen that is partially separated thanks to a large breakfast bar. A fireplace in the living room warms up the home, while this space leads into four comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also a boiler room with a laundry area.
This energy-efficient home features mechanical ventilation too!

The front of the home is very modern and simple with grey, flat tiles and a facade composed of plaster and natural wood.
A large paved pathway leads up to a front door, while the front garden has been carefully pruned and landscaped to enhance the entire exterior look and feel. Don't you love the little Christmas trees?

The back area of the house is just as simple, sleek and sweet as the front, however it features a little covered terrace area too! The covering protects this space from excessive sunlight so it can be enjoyed throughout summer.
The terrace features a table and chairs so that this space can be used for outdoor lunches or dinners. It also spills out onto a wooden deck, with sun loungers. These sun loungers are the perfect addition to this space, allowing for pure relaxation.
