The favorite spot is the glass-covered roof deck. Since there’s no longer need for a roof, the couple removed it and now have a large space for sunbathing, reading or playing with their son on swings and bikes.



The greenhouse isn’t the only novel point to the Granmar-Sacilotto home. They are also completely independent from city sewage.

Built by Sacilotto- an engineer by training-, the sewage system begins with a urine-separating toilet and uses centrifuges, cisterns, grow beds and garden ponds to filter the water and compost the remains.

In the video, Granmar mentions architect Bengt Warne's influence in the 1990s since this is the date he reached a larger audience with his book release.
