Inside, the 144-square-meter Southern Outlet House makes the most of its small footprint and modest budget through split levels that maximize space. A sense of spaciousness is further created through high ceilings and easy access to the garden and views of the outdoors. The building structure was constructed entirely from plantation timber, while the interior is lined with FSC-certified plywood . The building is further wrapped with mineral wool insulation and augmented with a high-performance rigid phenolic insulation board. Double-glazed windows, minimal southern openings, and a northeast orientation help achieve high levels of thermal control. The energy-efficient house is also equipped with photovoltaic cells and evacuated tube hot water heating.
