The Avenidor house is 100% autonomous and certified Passive House Premium.
In summary, this dwelling:
A technical data collection system has been implemented in this prototype to study the behavior of the building over the long term.
The constructive system is as follows:
From bottom to top :
U Radices = 0.104W / (m²K)
From the outside to the inside of the walls:
U Walls ext = 0.098W / (m²K)
From the outside to the inside:
U Roof = 0.073W / (m² / K)
U g-value = 0.88 W / (m²K)
g -value = 60%
Uw = 0.898 W / (m²K)
Double flux ventilation :
Domestic hot water :
96m² of two-sided photovoltaic panels (20% additional production) connected to an automated battery park. The system generates electricity for 2 buildings, including the Avenidor house.
ZOLPAN depolluting paints have been used to clean indoor air (up to 80% reduction in VOCs).
Drinking water treatment and purification system (filter body and UV bactericide).
Heat exchangers for heat recovery in greywater.
Microstation purification, operating without electricity, for the total treatment of gray and black water.
