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 factors 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 tons are very small in comparison with the buildability allowed by the rules.
This truth 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 gentle as a result of shadow generated by the home itself or the neighbors.
The essential concept 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 function. On this undertaking we have been in a position to work with two plots as a way to clear up your entire program of buyer wants on a single ground as a substitute of the neighboring constructions of PB+1.
This truth 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 speedy 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 automobiles and a small complementary house.
The development has been deliberate in two phases. Within the first section, the primary home has been constructed. It’s developed in a “U” form on the northern boundary, making a stable and intimate façade in the direction of the neighbors, whereas being open in the direction of the south to work together with the backyard and the longer term 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 kids’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 will 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 identical 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 as a way to eradicate the boundaries between the inside and the outside.
Concerning the discount of CO2 emissions linked to the development and helpful lifetime of this house, 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 techniques (porch and adjustable blinds). Thermal inertia via ceramic brick construction and steady concrete pavement. Thermal mass is an indispensable factor as a way to cut 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. Vitality manufacturing system from photovoltaic panels built-in into the roof.
Methods for decreasing the ecological footprint: wooden as the primary factor in roofing, home windows, inside linings, and facade finishes. Partitions produced from ceramic items fired with biomass. All these methods have allowed us to design a house with low vitality demand. This thermal consolation along with the interior-exterior relationship of the home, the continual pure gentle, and the intimacy generated within the face of disproportionate neighboring constructions have made us doable to create a snug house for an on a regular basis nice leaving.
