The Equinox House is a private residence near the town of Kavarna, 60 km from the city of Varna and from Varna Airport, with easy access to the international road number 9. It is located on a hill directly above the Golf Cliffs golf course, with incredible views of green golf course, on the sea and with a view only to the south. The project aims to create a simplified but stylish architectural model that allows its owner to enjoy the wildlife, still look at the horizon, and also provides the ability to track the movement of the sun using the built-in sundial - an observatory.
Regardless of its simplified design, the house is distinguished by the functionality and all the amenities of modern premium housing. It is designed in accordance with the German standard for passive houses and the American standard "Leeds" for sustainable construction. Modern air conditioning, ventilation and recovery systems, super insulation and triple glazed windows of frames of windows and doors and a curtain wall distinguish the house with exceptionally low energy consumption (energy consumption will not exceed 11 Wh / sq.m.). Despite the low cost of electricity, the house has a heated pool, as well as a small SPA center, including an infrared sauna, fitness room, relaxation room and a hot tub and shower. Four bedrooms with separate bathrooms and direct access to the terrace with a swimming pool, a spacious living room with kitchen and an open space type, turn the house into a convenient place for guests to meet. Separately from the rest of the rooms there is an entrance hall with a staircase, an office and terraces for relaxing and barbecue, and this allows you to create functional areas that are interconnected.
The green roof of the house, planted with local grassy species, merges with the surroundings, ensuring its privacy. A wastewater treatment plant, a rainwater collection tank and an electric power generator provide home autonomy, water and electricity supply, as well as cable TV, the Internet and an alarm system for local utilities.
