Good reasons for HUF HAUS
What are the advantages of building a HUF house?
“We drive quality to the limits of the technically feasible and always strive to be a step ahead of our clients’ high expectations”
It is with this approach that HUF HAUS established itself as the benchmark and example for the national and international construction industry.
Not all quality features in a HUF house are noticed at first glance. Many will be appreciated and proven
by the test of time. We want to name just a few for you...
Crafted with only the Finest Materials
Passion for Wood
Did you know that HUF HAUS build exclusively with Nordic spruce wood?
Chamber-dried, weather-resistant slats of 33 mm Nordic Spruce is delivered as to the HUF HAUS factory. It is here they are individually selected for your home and to comply with definitive quality standards.
Independent tests conducted by industry specialists have found that, even after many years, the wood (Nordic Spruce) installed in our show house builds has maintained the same moisture content from inception– only between 10 and 12% and unchanged from its delivery to our factory.
The high-quality wood has been correctly dried, correctly integrated and well maintained within our constructions; thus proving it extremely durable and sustainable for the life of our designs.
In summary: HUF HAUS principally install only quality certified and environmentally-friendly materials in every HUF House.
Living as one with Nature
Uninterrupted glazing creates a fluid and harmonious connection from the inside of your HUF house, to the outside world. The frameless floor-to-ceiling design has an especially eye-catching clerestory feature on both the gables and the eaves of the house.
HUF HAUS uses special quality controlled highly insulated triple glazing:
- U-value: 0.5 W/m2K according to DIN EN 673
- G-value: 0.48 to DIN EN 410
- Sound resistance: 41 Db
The outstanding quality of our glazing delivers three chief benefits, simultaneously:
- Protection from cold temperatures
- Protection from heat caused by solar radiation
- Protection against external sound; such as urban surrounding or road sources
Natural daylight keeps you healthy
The innovative post and beam architecture of a HUF HAUS has a captivating, expressive appearance. Wooden beams teamed with generous glazing form a visual gateway to the surrounding nature, allowing access to light at all times of day.
The generous glazing of a HUF homes provides more than a visual attraction- there are many positive health benefits to the HUF lifestyle.
As humans, we are mentally and physically adapted for the daylight, with more than 80 % of our sensory impressions transported by light. Therefore it is vital that we enjoy the healthy benefits given by sunlight. Other benefits, such as, free solar heat, outstanding thermal insulation, light flooded rooms and extensive views are just some of the welfares enjoyed by HUF house owner.
With the use of transparent architecture, HUF homes increase wellbeing and assure healthy living for the Mind, Body- and Soul.
The harmony between architecture and energy efficiency
True friends: Transparancy and Energy-Efficiency
Why transparent architecture and energy-efficiency are true friends at HUF HAUS:
Dedication towards the progressive development of energy efficiency has a long tradition at HUF HAUS. The latest mile stone on our journey is the HUF HAUS trade mark “green(r)evolution” establishing itself quickly as a widely successful model for innovative and energy efficient post and beam architecture.
The revolutionary HUF HAUS innovation for timber-frame buildings is that all wooden structural elements use a highly efficient thermal insulation layer. This unique insulation is prefabricated with great care and effort in the HUF HAUS plant.
"Thermal leakage", weak points in the thermal outer shell, is thus reduced to an absolute minimum. The energy efficiency thus realised obviates the need for mineral wool.
Each HUF House is individually designed for you by an experienced HUF HAUS architect. Your needs and wishes are the focal point of the design taking into account the land conditions, the climate and your budget.
"Since the house is located on an airpark, it was clear from the beginning that it would have to have a hangar. As a result, HUF HAUS built their first ever hangar which was perfectly matched for the size of the plane.
The automatic gate is a special construction and came from the United States. When we sent over the measurements of the gate, they came back to us asking whether we could check the measurements again. They had never had to build a door for a garage or hangar which was exactly the same height on each side, by millimeter. They simply couldn´t believe it." Robbie Weston
