Casa al bosc is the result of adapting the needs of an urban active life to the archetype dream of the house in the forest. The house has a white and broken appearance, due to a succession of open courtyards that enhance the natural ventilation and luminosity all over the house. That allows that in summer is not necessary the air conditioning to be fresh.
The construction with panels of wood and the excellent insulation allow that the house needs 5 times less of heating that a standard house. The final result is a light and strong house, made with natural materials being kind with the environment and its inhabitants.
