DuChateau Floors - Terra Collection in Zimbabwe / Horwitz Residence by Minarc

Horwitz Residence designed by Minarc

*The house is oriented so that all of the rooms can enjoy the outdoor living area which includes Pool, outdoor dinning / bbq and play court.

• The flooring used in this residence is by DuChateau Floors - Terra Collection in Zimbabwe. The modern dark colors of the collection match both contemporary & traditional interior design

• It’s orientation is thought out to maximize passive solar design and natural ventilations, with solar chimney escaping hot air during summer and heating cold air during winter eliminated the need for mechanical air handling.

• Simple Eco-conscious design that is focused on functionality and creating a healthy breathing family environment.

• The design elements are oriented to take optimum advantage of natural light and cross ventilation.

• Maximum use of natural light to cut down electrical cost.

• Interior/exterior courtyards allows for natural ventilation as do the master sliding window and living room sliders.

• Conscious effort in using only materials in their most organic form.

• Solar thermal radiant floor heating through-out the house

• Heated patio and fireplace for outdoor dining maximizes indoor/outdoor living. The entry living room has glass to both sides to further connect the indoors and outdoors.

• Floor and ceiling materials connected in an unobtrusive and whimsical manner to increase floor plan flow and space.

• Magnetic chalkboard sliders in the play area and paperboard sliders in the kids' rooms transform the house itself into a medium for children's artistic expression.

• Material contrasts (stone, steal, wood etc.) makes this modern home warm and family

It looks like it could be the same wood used on the floor. The floor is listed as "by DuChateau Floors - Terra Collection in Zimbabwe"

Any small house designs - Looking for small house ideas

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In any reclaimed-wood pile, there will be unusable scraps. The key is finding pieces in good condition that are not overly warped. (It’s also a good idea to look out for bug infestation, since that can turn into a homeowner nightmare, according to Schmidt.) Reclaimed wood that is brittle and nonuniform can require extra steps, such as carving tongue and groove parts and then milling the surface for a smooth finish. But don’t be afraid of wood with distinct age marks. These can present a visual history, says Schmidt, who recommends oak and Douglas fir because of their hardness and durability.
“In any reclaimed-wood pile, there will be unusable scraps. The key is finding pieces in good condition that are not overly warped.” — Rebecca PogsonWe’ve all been tracking the trend of reclaimed wood accent walls, and it seems the warm texture they bring to a space gives them staying power. But many of us attracted to the idea haven’t committed because we don’t know the nitty-gritty details. Pogson helps us with advice on the best spots to place a reclaimed-wood wall, how to choose the best boards, color palettes that complement it, who to hire and which tools you’ll need if you decide to do the installation yourself.Full story: What to Know About Adding a Reclaimed-Wood Wall
