The house has A Energy Rating and is designed with PassivHaus criteria. This house has been conceived through a careful study of its volume and optimization of its constructive envelope with walls and fenestration of excellent quality and with a high degree of insulation and sealing, which ensures high energy efficiency due to the very low demand for energy needed to keep the interior spaces in a comfort temperature condition. The use of wood, certified and produced in close proximity, results in a building constructed with very low embodied energy and low CO₂ emissions in its energy construction process.
