Patch22 was designed in 2009 with a GPR score of 8.9 and an EPC of 0.2. The roof is completely filled with PV panels making the building energy-neutral. Rainwater is collected and reused in a greywater circuit. The heat is generated with CO2 neutral pellet boilers, fired on pressed wood waste from the wood industry. The 30m high residential building has wood as the main material.
The heights and trees on the building ground have been mapped to embed the house, garden house, carport and barn of the Bosvilla in the landscape. The house has a two-layer structure with the sleeping quarters on the lower level. Thanks to the lower landscape at the rear of the plot, there is enough light in the bedrooms and a beautiful view to the surrounding forest. The habitat is at the ground level that connects to the surrounding landscape on three sides.
