In an old house in the center of the Horta district, the project recovers the back yard and increases the specifications by extending the house with another level. In addition to the general redistribution of spaces and structural consolidation, the aim is to build a house with almost no energy consumption by using passive elements and high energy-efficiency systems.
Bar the systems, all the construction methods used could be considered “conventional”, which shows that you can design a highly energy-efficient building with any construction system if the passive systems are properly analyzed and adequately combined with technology.
Inside, original features are restored and left exposed, such as old wooden beams and brick walls, all combined with new materials in shades of white, light gray and natural wood.
