VORBILD Architecture added this to Ask an Expert: Why Should I Use an Architect?1 July 2015

…enhance the feel of your homeThere’s a Latin phrase – genius loci – that means ‘the essence of a place’. It describes the intangible, and an architect can help enhance how a new building, extension or alteration should feel.For example, here the architect has clearly captured the genius loci and used his or her practical experience to create this building, which is at one with the ground. In contrast, it could have been built with more traditional-looking solid walls, windows and a basic roof, which would not have embodied the natural soul of this environment.

A buried home in the NetherlandsEmbedded in a wooded Dutch moor where the ground rises up like a small mountain, this sustainable house is not just close to nature, it’s built into it. According to the architects, absorbing the house in the hill insulated the home but also hid it. The homeowners enter through a cut-out section in the mountain.Aboveground a timber cantilevered roof emerges, with its glazed openings oriented to maximise the sun’s energy and light up the interior. The house’s thermal mass retains heat when needed, and the earth’s natural properties cool the house in the summer.

Like the way the house nestles into the block. Don't like the way it feels a bit too showy and over the top. Too much glass.

Thermal mass needs to be used in conjunction with other passive solar design techniques, such as orientation, glazing and insulation. Large areas of glass allow the sun to hit the thermal mass so that it can absorb heat. The amount of glazing and where it’s located depends on the climate.
