House in a House is a sustainable house renovation of an exiting 1980 rowhouse in Wassenaar. By adding a rooftop there is created more living space and a void. Around the void the sustainable climate control of the house is realised. Sleeping rooms connected to the void have windows. By opening the windows free energy could be added to the rooms. By electrical outside sunscreens the climate can be controlled. Nightcooling in summer cools the house.

It opens around a patio; around this central space all living area’s are situated. The modern Western villa is more open to the outside and interacts with its surroundings.
