Inspiration 002: A House becomes a Greenhouse

This house in Sweden was completely transformed by placing a greenhouse envelope around itself. I’m not sure how warm it gets in the Summer but assuming the ventilation problems were solved, this is a marvelous solution for cold climates. With this house the original roof had to be removed in order to construct a sunny deck, but with new construction why not build a flat-roofed house where the roof _is_ the deck in the first place!
