Houl House by Simon Winstanley Architects was built in Scotland. The house is situated on a hillside and partly sunk into it, which helps to protect it from cold northern winds and opens a nice view over the valley, nearby river and mountain range behind it. The residence is almost completely provided with electricity by wind turbines, large windows allow to save indoor lighting, and modern insulation system helps to keep a comfortable temperature inside the house all year round. As a result, we could see one more contemporary eco-house on the pictures below. The Houl received an Award in the Residential category of the 2010 GIA Awards.
