One of the largest certified passive houses in the world can be found in the town of Amay (Belgium). On a very spacious plot, beautifully located on the edge of a forest, Myriam Sendon and Bruno Diliberto built their dream house, designed by architect firm DSH. Rockpanel is one of the proud partners of this remarkable self build project, which is unique in its genre.
A remarkable passive house
Myriam Sendon and Bruno Diliberto now live in a quite remarkable home, which has a 40-metre-long facade. Whereas the building’s cuboid-shaped mass offers a lot of privacy at the north facing street side, the south side is very much connected to the outside world. The two overhangs, roof terrace and large glass panes make the house look like a luxury Californian villa. The large windows offer a panoramic view to an open landscape with lush planting. The imposing window on the west side looks out directly at the forest.
The house has a living area of a massive 688 m². Keeping the energy consumption low was a very important aspect for the owners, which is why they decided to use the passive house standard.
