The new Stommel Haus show home is open to the public in the show home village near Cologne. It is a wonderful timber house which stands out amongst the other houses in the village. The house is built with polar spruce heartwood to the highest standards and with fantastic energy efficiency - just like all the other houses Stommel Haus builds for their clients. What is new is the Solar Ice heating - the surplus energy of the summer is stored in a water tank burried in the garden and used for heating the house with a heat pump in winter.
The big glass front and the integrated sun room let in a lot of light. The roof ridge upstairs is visible trough the open gallery over the dining area. 198 m² living surface provide for a wonderful family house with a flexible layout.

The new show home of Stommel Haus, which is currently being finished in the show home village near Cologne, will be heated with a new high-tech system using solar and ice energy. It will be open for the public from June 2012. Besides the fantastic architecture of the open plan, airy and light contemporary timber house and the typical top quality of Stommel Haus, the novelty of this house is its heating system “Solar Ice”. The heating system linked to the under-floor heating on all floors of the house provides the warmth in the winter and cools the house in a hot summer. The full height windows, the glass front over two storeys on the front elevation and a sun-room provide lots of light for the house with 4 bedrooms and around 200 m² living space.
