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.
