Valencia – 2011
Valencia – 2011
A house to invite the grandchildren to in the summer, or all year round if desired. Designed to be practical and versatile, with the right touch of design that its owners appreciate. It has all the things we need to be comfortable but in minimum usable space. A house where you can enjoy the garden, its versatility and low maintenance. Dinner with friends in the light of the house, warm winters with almost no heating, and large windows which allow you to relax and enjoy the views. The project had two initial requirements:.. portability and speed: It had to be ready to celebrate Verbena de San Juan with the family, as well as being transportable in the future should the owners decide to split the plot into two. We proposed a wooden prefab modular solution, that could stand on three concrete walls of 60 cm wide. The house, which came flying (an expression used by Blanca when she was four and saw her home unloaded by crane), can, one day, fly away again. The warmth of the wood combined with the understated minimalism of its shape give personality to a building that hides much technical complexity beneath its design

Energy consumption for home climate control
In the distribution of the plant we have combined an open SPACE module that serves as a common area (lounge/dining room), with a hub module (containing a full bathroom and kitchen), and a second SPACE in which we have located 2 rooms. A passage takes us from the common area to a private one.
This combination allows a family of 4 members to enjoy a comfortable area without wasted space.
Climate control equipment with a heat recovery system enables both control of the house ventilation and savings in air conditioning. It makes use of the stale warm air from inside the house and mixes it with the fresh air from outside so naturally regulating the temperature. The outside air intake is made through hygro-adjustable air inlets located in dry areas (dining room and bedroom) and the foul air extraction is performed by an extraction exit located in the bathroom
