Bioclimatic living volumes in the neighbourhood scale are disposed within a green surface (gardens for the dwellers) and a hard surface (entrance from the principal avenue).
Together, the architecture concept and a bioclimatic construction (double skin and central atrium) are developed to control a comfortable temperature to the apartments, allowing energy economy in both summer and winter times.
Energy and Comfort
The project applies a passive and active system of economy and energy production, by associating natural ventilation, solar protection and photovoltaic panels.
