Brick House from LETH & GORI

Discovered on ArchDaily, we are taking note of this home designed by Denmark's LETH & GORI. From Archdaily:

"Brick House is part of a development project titled Mini-CO2 houses initiated by the philanthropic foundation Realdania. The goal of Realdania’s project is to develop affordable sustainable houses with a low CO2 footprint. A total of six houses have been built on a site in Nyborg Denmark. Each house with a different approach to how CO2 reduction can be achieved for example by focusing on materials and building techniques or by focusing on aiding the inhabitants to reduce CO2."

While innovation in construction is certainly a theme of the project, a dedication to traditional form is equally integral to the concept. Overall symmetry and a conspicuous allegiance to wood surfaces lend a strong Scandinavian identity to the project. For more, visit LETH & GORI and ArchDaily.
