There is little doubt that green homes are our future. Sure, you can have a bit of skepticism about both clean energy on a larger scale and global climatic changes, but it is impossible to deny the many benefits that a green home brings along with it. It does much more than help make the planet we live in a better place and preserve it for future generations. It ensures that over time, your life becomes healthier, happier and much more cost-effective. The Hill House in Russia is one such gorgeous and innovative modern residence designed by Snegiri Architects with a green roof that ends up stealing the spotlight.
When viewed from rear, the home seems to blend in with the lush green landscape around it. Apart from the tall trees around the house, a wonderful ‘live roof’ filled with ‘stonecrop and dwarf plants’ allows the home to disappear into the scenery. The green roof also aids in keeping the temperatures inside moderate across seasons while the smart series of windows and doors usher in heat and light during hotter months. A small wooden deck, smart organization of spaces inside and features like cold-proof mineral wool complete the adaptive and energy-efficient Hill House.
