Section 1.0 Introduction House Petry Retreat is a single family house, which is designated and designed and intended by N+P Architecture and is sited in Denmark. The House is a white building spotted free from any embellished, revised in a green context and mortifying a wooden cube. An introspective construction as well as being extrovert; introversion comes from its look toward inner spaces while being illusive for the viewer and extroversion is felt when inviting the viewer to the interior space through a platform (Anon 2017). The house is constructed in a wooden construction and covered and sheathed with thermal wood, therefore the roof is covered with sedum green roof. The house has widely made usage of pine wood as its building material and built and constructed with enormous and vast glass windows around the house. The complete house has engaged the area of 120.0 m2 . This single level story comes with the bedroom, common areas and separated into access.

From the outlining of this house exhibited in the image, this author visualized the glimpse of this architect is just not elementary and simple to build a modern house, but more exhaustive and intensive in constructing a place as less affecting on the enclosed environment as feasible.
Section 2.0 Architectural Features and Style The existing competition of building and designing this project was the relationship between interior (internal) and exterior (external) spaces. The volume is individualistic as well as combined and the clarity of structure and form enhanced modesty about mysterious nature. Enlarged terrace, held up by columns is inferred and concluded by linear railing to magnifies transparency and as well as to influence it over green plains around the house. Contemplating a return to Rococo and Baroque, Neo-classicism emerged in the mid 18th Century and conducted to bring again a integrity and magnificence to the modern architecture. This project Inspiration was drawn away from the classic techniques of Ancient Greek and Roman designing and its buildings. Comprehensibility, consistency and symmetry were its central values. The idea of cubic structure and angles can be seen in the modernism designs. The utilization of contemporary materials, communication with interior and exterior spaces, the usage of sun and its shadow for human comfort, usage of glass and the natural light perfectly sits with the designed project. The walls of the house are narrow and thinner, the columns are more minimal, windows enhanced with stained glass.

Outdoor resources for the villas comprise a landscaped garden, which divide the site from within the street and the contiguous lots, additionally an outdoor landscape and also a fireplace.
Construction Systems and Materials
BUILDING MATERIALS Clay Brick one of the materials used in the construction method of this house for exterior and interior finish as clay brick insulates as most of the building materials do not and has natural thermal property that keeps it warm in winter and cool in summer. Therefore wood is another material used according to landscape nearby due to airtight, vapor barrier and its durability. However Metal is used for exterior finish for its super longer longevity and weather resistance. Concrete is used for internal and exterior walls and slabs as its more resistance. Advantage of using concrete is for sound reduction with an additional power coded aluminum window with a color bond steel roof. With use of all these materials making it an energy efficient house. There is also been a used of a cool material such Seranit for interior interaction. However every truss is made up of local pine. For the finishing material of building Basalt stone has been used over to provide identity and maximum light.
BUILDING SYSTEM It is a Private home located in in west coast of Denmark, designed by N+P Architecture. This building had to be constructed on a 10% steep terrain; it is built into single cube. The house is built with a intention being breezy and bright for which large glass windows are placed over all and to develop a strong connection with the nature and weather outside.
