Even us gardeners with Black Thumbs, understands why plants love to live in green houses. They are basically no different than your average vacationer, they want to sunbath all day and be wrapped in a warm blanket of air? Wouldn’t it be nice if we humans could live in our own version of a green house. Something bathing in natural light, which always stays nice and toasty, even in the coldest of climates. Turns out we can do just that, even in a frigid place like Belgian, green houses are the perfect people growers. The home pictured above is a greenhouse in every sense of the word. As in a typical gardening greenhouse, this one is constructed from a prefabricated steel frame, alternating series of super-insulating transparent glass and translucent polycarbonate plates and extra insulation in the back of the house. The insulation in the back also serves the purpose of obscuring the views into the house.

Through the clever use of the insulating glass, the same heating effect that is found in a real greenhouse is successfully mimicked. This occurs when heat from the sun’s rays passes through the glass walls and warms up the interior whilst the insulation in the glass prevents the heat from escaping.

The greenhouse is located in Asse – Belgium. Designed by the Belgian architect Carl Verdickt, the house is furnished minimally with whites and woods to complement the feeling of ‘openness’ that prevails throughout the abode. Such is achieved through the reverted house layout in which the private quarters are located below whilst the rest of the house is located above and set in an open-floor concept. The interior layout gives the living space on the first floor and the office on the mezzanine, have impressive views of the canopy of trees surrounding the home.

    Pretty good for pre-fab, but who wants to do dishes with their back to the windows, it doesn't feel right. That should be changed, otherwise, looks good.

    Very nice interior design, especially the 1st image. Hope I could have those kind of seats for my patio.

     If you could afford this, you’d probably want to keep an eye on the person you’ve hired to do your dishes.
