The project of this two-storey single-family home is designed to meet three main goals:
Firstly, the home must be an energy-independent entity, even exceeding the standards of NZEB (Net-Zero Energy Building).
To achieve this, the building has high levels of thermal insulation outside, as well as high-efficiency glazing with solar control and an air renewal system with a heat exchanger.
The installations are highly energy-efficient and are connected to a set of photovoltaic panels that provide electricity to the whole house. In addition, this system is also able to accumulate the excess energy that is not being used, allowing the charging of electric vehicles or the subsequent reuse of energy in the home itself.
On the other hand, due to the great transparency and permeability of the garden facade, the daytime areas are closely connected to the outdoors and boast great panoramic views. The volumetry of the house itself separates this space from the street, offering good privacy.
Finally, in the future, the two floors could actually work separately with an independent layout on each floor. This has been made possible by incorporating a large multipurpose room in the bedrooms area on the first floor, which could function as a daytime area.
