Almese, Italy

This building, awarded by GBC Italia with a Gold Certificate, was created from the will of the clients to create a sustainable and efficient home. It was designed to ensure strong energy efficiency performance due to careful planning of the thermal envelope, glazing and the use of the sun as an energy source. The need to make the most of solar radiation in the winter period was met by the construction of large south-facing windows and solar collecting greenhouse. The building is shaded during the summer by appropriately-designed overhangs.
