Textual content description supplied by the architects. The undertaking is situated in a brand new growth space for indifferent homes very near the costa daurada, close to the Mediterranean Sea. This urbanization has nothing particular because it follows the standards of all latest planning in Catalonia the place the first goal is the financial efficiency of land exploitation. As a consequence, so as to have the ability to promote the most important variety of plots, the ensuing heaps are very small in comparison with the buildability allowed by the laws.
This reality is essential since what finally ends up are neighborhoods the place outsized buildings predominate: constructions that use the buildability and most peak, very shut to one another, and with gardens with out pure mild as a result of shadow generated by the home itself or the neighbors.
The fundamental thought of neighborhoods created from the Backyard Home idea finally ends up being perverted and the outside area linked to housing turns into residual, ineffective to its goal. On this undertaking we have been in a position to work with two plots with a purpose to clear up your entire program of buyer wants on a single flooring as a substitute of the neighboring constructions of PB+1.
This reality has allowed us to combine outer area into the undertaking by designing a completely sunny backyard. Along with the constructing, it has created a peaceable and cozy microclimate remoted from its rapid environment. The undertaking consists of two buildings that enclose the backyard. The primary home is situated on the northern boundary, and on the southern boundary, there’s a construction that features a massive porch for autos and a small complementary house.
The development has been deliberate in two phases. Within the first section, the principle home has been constructed. It’s developed in a “U” form on the northern boundary, making a strong and intimate façade in direction of the neighbors, whereas being open in direction of the south to work together with the backyard and the long run development. By way of group, the “U” form additionally permits us to separate the 2 lateral wings the place we place the nighttime program. The dad and mom’ space is within the western wing, and the youngsters’s space is within the japanese wing.
The day area, the place we discover the kitchen, the lounge, and the eating room, hyperlinks the 2 facet wings. It’s a daytime area designed to respect the need of the household to benefit from the radiation/daylight throughout all hours of the day and through all days of the 12 months. On the similar time, it additionally goals to be an extension of the outside area, the backyard. For these causes, we created a canopy, a butterfly roof, which folds and generates skylights to the east and west, whereas to the north and south, we open the area with massive openings all the way down to the bottom with a purpose to remove the boundaries between the inside and the outside.
Relating to the discount of CO2 emissions linked to the development and helpful lifetime of this dwelling, the next methods have been used. Bioclimatic methods and helpful lifetime of the constructing: South-facing photo voltaic seize with built-in photo voltaic safety methods (porch and adjustable blinds). Thermal inertia by way of ceramic brick construction and steady concrete pavement. Thermal mass is an indispensable aspect with a purpose to scale back the temperature in heat and humid climates near the ocean. Excessive thermal efficiency envelope: Façade completed with SATE U=0.24 W/m2K and picket body cowl U=0.16 W/m2K. Managed cross air flow. Power manufacturing system from photovoltaic panels built-in into the roof.
Methods for decreasing the ecological footprint: wooden as the principle aspect in roofing, home windows, inside linings, and facade finishes. Partitions constituted of ceramic items fired with biomass. All these methods have allowed us to design a house with low power demand. This thermal consolation along with the interior-exterior relationship of the home, the continual pure mild, and the intimacy generated within the face of disproportionate neighboring constructions have made us potential to create a cushty dwelling for an on a regular basis nice leaving.
