The renovation of an old country house in El Garraf, an example of self-sufficient passive housing
The architect Marcel Fontanillas (http://www.walden0.com/) has carried out the rehabilitation of an old family house in Garraf, where passive strategies of energy efficiency and reduction of environmental impacts are incorporated.
This is an example of Passive House disconnected from the electricity network, which represents a type of housing where energy consumption is lower than the regular and, therefore, allows to achieve comfort without using conventional heating and cooling systems.
Societat Orgànica has participated in the house renovation process, carrying out the project’s assessment in terms of energy efficiency.
The newspaper El Periódico has also published a new about this project.
