In this project Societat Orgànica made the advice of the building with very high environmental efficiency criteria and the maximization of passive functioning. All distribution spaces and the large body space 3 are not actively heated, but maintain the comfort conditions thanks to good passive design and automated management of bioclimatic systems, such as natural ventilation openings and shading systems . In this way, the total volume is reduced to actively climate control and, consequently, the consumption of ventilation and air conditioning is reduced.
An in-depth study of the functioning of the body 3 was made from the point of view of the movement of air, with a CFD tool (computational fluid dynamics).
