The Nature House concept (or Naturhus in Swedish) was developed by Swedish architect Bengt Warne in the 1970s. The houses consists of a core - a living area, that is surrounded by a shell of glass - a greenhouse. The greenhouse sets the insulated inner core in a warmer climate and provides sheltered "outdoor space" from the cold northern winter. It gives you the possibility to grow plants from warmer climate zones and preheats air for ventilation.
