Located in northern Romania in the town of Suceava surrounded by a mature forest, Passive House Che enjoys its surrounding environment by engaging with it through large windows . Although most passive houses don’t have huge glazed walls, this one does and enjoys a high level of natural light. In fact, a central core is completely glazed and serves as an atrium for the house to pull light into the inner reaches. This is also where the home has a ground floor of grass and a net lounge accessed from the second story. The inhabitants can play or relax on the canopy and feel like they are outside even though they are indoors.
