Not everything from Iceland is bad for human activity

Reading Time: 1

Ok, Iceland and its Eyjafjöll were really on the spotlights this month. But not everything coming from Iceland is bad for us… at the contrary. See this initiative from the design cabinet Studio Granada Architects who created this project in the north part of the island. It is what we call a “passive house”. It means the architects tried to respect all the different ecological and respectful parameters, even by using existing materials at the spot. The result is quite astonishing, a very mineral house, beautiful, elegant and still respecting the environment. Of course as you can imagine, they use the energy of the floor to heat up the entire house.
As you can see here in the pictures, we could call it a desirable development.

Let’s hope other initiatives of this kind might grow around the world.
