The project proposal stems from the desire to create a building-system capable of establishing ecological relationships with the natural environment.
The double-skin south facade provide protection from the sun and, at the same time, it transforms the sun radiations in energy thanks to a system of Photovoltaic Panels of Third Generation, integrated within. In winter it become a serra that provides warm, while during the summer, it acts as a ventilated wall. The building structure is constructed by prefabricated wooden panels that give an high thermic/phonic insulation to the apartments. A natural air-cooling is also integrated within the building, it is based on the evaporative cooling principle, the temperature is lowered by the water vaporized in vertical conducts.
The building behavior is changing according with the seasons to reach the request level of living comfort.
