House MarchesiniBudrio (BO), 2011
Energy Class: CasaClima ClasseA
Characterized by a sailing roof, this duplex house, designed by the original designer as a building brick and reinforced concrete, was converted to the wooden technologies. In fact, on a bed with a glass granular cell base, lies on a structure with bearing walls of xLam, and a curved laminated beams coverage.
The insulation is performed by 16 cm of wood fiber wall-mounded and 20 cm in roof. A 3 kWp photovoltaic array has been installed on the top of the sailing roof, while the solar thermal panelhas found a place on the brise soleil pergola in front of the balconies.
The internal functional distribution takes highest advantage of solar loads: living room and bedrooms overlooking to a bright south front but appropriately shielded by raffstore systems, while to the north there are services, car garage, entry and technical compartment. The latter includes, among others things, a condensing boiler of 2-17 kW, which is responsible for winter heating and, to accompany the thermal solar panel, for sanitary water preparation. It was not introduced any cooling system since the summer comfort is guaranteed by the high thermal lag.
