Most Important Goals - Integrate seamlessly housing half buried in the slope of the land, allowing a large opening to the south (with exceptional views), and a perfect natural lighting in all rooms. - Make new formal proposals, based on compositions of curved load-bearing walls of high thermal inertia. - "Carve" a home in the natural slope of a privileged environment. - Get the same amount of green area, the surface that has the land on which it builds. 2. Architectural Solution The house is solved in three tiers, staggered along the south slope of the hill. This will allow spectacular views, and allowing a high level of interior lighting, although the dwelling has a single facade, facing south. The lower level houses the rooms dedicated to guests, and access to the pool. At the intermediate level is the kitchen, living room, and bedrooms of the family. At the top level are the main gardens of the house, as a roof garden. The three levels are intimately connected to the adjacent ground level, so you can move from one level to another, simply strolling through the gardens outside the home. Inside the house there is a large two-storey central space that provides its occupants vertical communication, and allows the generation of internal drafts, for the natural soda throughout the house. In winter, this central space becomes a greenhouse that allows the customer dwelling itself. 3. Sustainable Analysis 1. Resource Optimization 1.1. Natural Resources. They take full advantage of resources such as the sun (to heat the house), the wind, water and earth (to cool the housing), rain water (for watering the garden and flushing toilets), .... . On the other hand, has installed water saving devices on taps, showers and flush toilets. 1.2. Resources made. The materials used are maximized, thus avoiding possible waste through proper project and effective management. On the other hand, proper housing design, based on load-bearing walls, can be built with little supporting resources. 1.3. Resources recovered, reused and recycled. Much of the housing materials are recoverable. It has also promoted the use of recycled and recyclable materials. On the other hand, has made extensive use of recovered materials (waste) and reused materials. 2. Decreased energy consumption 2.1. Construction. The house is built with minimal energy consumption. The vast majority of the materials used were manufactured using a minimal amount of energy. On the other hand, housing has been built with little supporting resources, and with very little labor. 2.2. Use Due to its characteristics bioclimate policies, the home has a very low energy consumption standard. The house is heated by greenhouse gases and solar radiant floor heating. Similarly, hot water is generated through solar thermal captors. The house is cooled by geothermal systems architecture and spraying water, and needs no mechanical conditioning, so no energy to cool. 2.3. Dismantling The vast majority of materials used can be recovered easily. On the other hand, housing is projected to have a high durability, as all components are easily serviceable housing. 3. Using alternative energy sources The energy used is of two types: solar thermal (solar thermal sensors for floor heating and ACS, and evaporation of water to air cooling), and geothermal energy (air refresh system taking advantage of low temperatures existing underground in the galleries below the floor slab of the house). 4. Reduced waste and emissions Housing does not generate any emissions and does not generate any waste, except organic. Some of these household waste are used again to treat them accordingly (gray water for watering the garden). On the other hand, during the construction of the house just waste were generated. 5. Improving health and wellbeing All materials used are environmentally friendly and healthy and have no emissions that can affect human health. Similarly, the house is naturally ventilated, and maximizes natural light (artificial lighting can not be used as long as natural lighting), which creates a healthy environment and provides the best possible quality of life for building occupants . 6. Reduced price of the building and maintenance The house has been designed rationally, and most of its components are industrialized, eliminating redundant items, unnecessary or gratuitous, allowing construction to a greatly reduced price, despite the ecological equipment includes. Similarly, housing is almost maintenance: Regular cleaning and treatment of wood biennial vegetable oils. 4. Highlights Innovations - System of ecological waste water purification through reeds and bamboo rafts. - Integration into the home composting systems, to create arable layer to the garden, from household waste. - Ecological system of purifying pool water.
