Modern Sustainable Blue House Materials Architecture Design by FARO Architecten
Blue House was designed by Dutch architect Pieter Weijnen from Faro Architecten. It is in Steiger island, one of seven artificial island away from Amsterdam IJburg lakes dredged LJ. The color reminds the blue waters, surrounded and that’s what takes its name. The houses are designed with the use of sustainable energy in the mind.
Large south facade leaves much light and heat. Cooling system was inspired by the old Arabic cooling towers. Pumped air out of the house in an underground pipe from which the cold air can be brought back into the house. Re-use rain water for toilets and washing machines. The building was built in wood and recycled materials. Beam in the facade of the lake is the old bollards IJ.
