Entirely Recyclable, Zero-Emissions, Zero-Carbon, Sustainable Glass House in Stuttgart, Germany — Heat Mirror Technology

Who would have guessed that an entirely recyclable, zero-emissions, zero-carbon, sustainable house could be such a style icon? House R 128 by the architects at Werner Sobek brings the best of both worlds to the table. Rising four storeys in Stuttgart, Germany, this modern glass edifice has nothing to hide. The see-through house features a facade of triple-glazed windows that allow natural light to filter through and flood every room inside. The home’s front facade features photovoltaic panels that power the house and light it up when the sun goes down. Adding to its amazing sustainable features, the house also boasts geothermal energy and cooling. The modern modular design – including its wooden floor and facade – is designed for easy assembly and dismantling, so not only is this innovative house off-the-grid, it’s also reusable, and completely recyclable! Accessible by a bridge above the kitchen and dining room, the 2,706-sq.-ft. home offers a warm welcome with a contemporary edge. Minimal style is king at House R 128, which has no interior walls, and a few modern pieces that characterize the home’s open-concept living areas.

Andrew and his team were amazing! The project took several days (demolish and rebuild a staircase and supporting wall). They were on time EVERY day and truly cared about my property. They hung plastic and ensured that the dirt/dust from the project did not permeate the rest of the house.

From the very beginning, Andrew Cosello was professional and knowledgeable. He gave us a fair and appropriate estimate for the job. He communicated well with us throughout the entire job – from informing us as to when the job would begin as well as updates about how long the job would take.

After receiving 7 quotes for the project, we hired Cosello Construction. Cosello’s quote was not the cheapest or the most expensive. We feel that we got what we paid for by hiring Cosello Construction: quality craftmanship, experience, and an industry professional. Cosello Construction worked with our architectural plans and completed the work masterfully.

Andrew and his assistants do excellent work. We had them do major renovations on our investment property, so we hired him for some minor work in our own home. We were very pleased with the work done on both properties and would recommend them to a friend or relative without hesitation.
