M House by Marcel Luchian
Architect Marcel Luchian has designed the M House, a single family residence project in Singera, Moldova. The architect will present the project at the GIS 2013 International Architecture Expo Conference. Here is a description from the architects, “MHouse is a contemporary architecture based on overlapping rectangles designed for nice panorama view in Singera, Moldova. So the shape is unique if we look for a second from the outside. With accents on facade forms, minimalist interior offer you correct function of it with light and shadow and materials.
The house is situated east-west, with most living spaces enjoying maximum daylight via strategically placed ventilating windows to south, east and west-oriented window walls, providing a variety of exposures and views. The polished concrete floors on both floors have radiant heat pipes embedded in the structure, providing the primary source of heat. Energy-efficient heat pumps provide supplemental heat and air-conditioning on rare occasions. Spray-foam insulation was used on all perimeter walls, at the roof and between the first and second floors to maximize the thermal efficiency of the structure.”
