Owner approach of sustainability
The aim is to provide sustainable accommodation that promotes the health and well-being of users and that is environmentally friendly, not only during the construction process of the work, but throughout the life of the building
The architecture has been based on an eminently energetic rehabilitation but also deals with general aspects of sustainability: water management, responsible materials, innovation, good practices in construction, local promotion, respect for the environment and human health. The main thrust of this promotion has been the adaptability of housing and the participation of final users in the design and construction process of housing. The result: adapted, healthy and sustainable accommodation.
