AMBER GARDENS – by Alesonor

Tunari, Romania

The model house of this luxury homes project is completed, six to follow shortly after, and a total of sixty single family houses planned. The houses are designed and constructed using bio-climatic design principles to achieve the ambitious Passiv Haus energy efficiency certification and, with photovoltaic panels installed, achieving in 2014 the nearly “Net Zero Energy” standard due by European Directive in 2020. Nontoxic coatings, adhesives, and other building materials ensure the future health of the families living at Amber Gardens. The homes’ native plants and greener choices for roads and sidewalks add to the environmental performance of the homes. This project is the first Green Homes approved project certified by RoGBC for detached homes.
