Sleek and sustainable prefab home in the Swiss Alps was constructed in just a few days

Sleek and sustainable prefab home in the Swiss Alps was constructed in just a few days

Both rooftop and perimeter walls are constructed with thermally insulated wooden materials, making sure the home meets criteria for high quality energy standards. Insulated selective and low-e glass were used in window installation throughout the home, as well as thermally broken aluminum profile with triple insulated glazing. The flooring is equipped with radiant heating capabilities, which is powered by an electrical pump. Lighting fixtures all feature LED lamps , yet the amount of daylight coming through leaves little need during the bright hours of the day.
