Energy-intensive building

It is a single-family home in which we have opted for the integration of passive energy-saving, low emission active and control measures to have a balance between comfort and consumption. Natural cross ventilation and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and free-cooling, active yards, geothermal energy, solar control and natural lighting, artificial lighting based on LEDs, large insulation and durable and local materials, make this home an example of implementation of the sustainability in architecture without giving up design.

Owner approach of sustainability

The developer has always had the advice of the architecture team, experts in environmental philosophy, and has always been open to incorporate any systems and improvements that could make the building more sustainable without affecting the design, its best selling tool.

Architectural description

It is a U-shaped building developed mainly in a living plant at the ground floor-access level, plus a basement where, in addition to the space for vehicles, a garden-level patio is incorporated that reaches the deck and is the heart of the house. The patio divides the most social spaces from the most private ones. There is always a communication between rooms that, combined with the large windows, makes the borders between interior and exterior dissipate and the garden "enters" into the house.

The living room incorporates more natural light by breaking the roof to open even more into the garden, but the cover is extended as a visor to prevent direct entry of the sun in the central hours of the day. The interior patio regulates the temperature and ventilation in the housing since, as a chimney, it can be opened at the top to create drafts that pass through the vegetation and renew the air.
