SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE

The term "bio-architecture" is a set of disciplines, related to architecture, ecosystem assume a respectful attitude and the place where a building is erected.

This view is highly interdisciplinary and is based on a prudent and responsible use of the resources at our disposal; We integrate human activities to those pre-existing environmental and natural phenomena to achieve an improvement in the quality of present and future life.

What is it, exactly, the Bio architecture?

also called by other names such as green building and bio-ecological architecture, the term bio-architecture is derived from the German "baubiologie" which means "building biology"; It has been rediscovered in recent years but, in fact, has very ancient origins.

It deals with the use of natural materials, non-polluting and is careful use of equipment that generates electromagnetic waves, trying to eliminate all the harmful elements to the mental and physical health.

The purpose of the building gives top priority to interest the man, his health and well-being in order to live harmoniously with others and with the environment.

The building is regarded as a living organism that must fit naturally in the environment, without creating barriers.

Therefore, the ecological design of the building does not only care, but also of the context in which it is inserted, while respecting the environment and local traditions.

Two principles reference cornerstones:

1 – Sustainability: it means we have to balance the meeting current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own, therefore it should be applied to the climate, the environment and all production activities which man exercises leveraging resources natural, without causing irreparable damage to our descendants.

For it is now certain that today humanity lives in an unsustainable way, consuming natural resources faster than the earth might be able to regenerate;

2 – The biocompatibility can be translated as "participate in the life", it means that we have to make harmonious the relationship between life and everything that can be defined as biocompatible.

In medicine we use the term biocompatibility to test the ability of a substance to be metabolized by living organisms without any effect.

The benchmarks and goals of ecological design for emphasizing certain basic principles.

    The use of local materials, possibly available in large quantities, they must have undergone Reduced machining processes, in order to ensure a reduction of the energy transformation and transport waste.
   
The materials must be natural, durable, easily cleanable and easy to maintain.
   
Materials must be recoverable and recyclable, that is their life cycle should continue after their first use.
   
The use of ancient techniques through to be facilitated through the use of modern technologies.
   
The systems must be installed in compliance with the maximum energy efficiency.
   
Renewable energy produced from sun, wind and other climatic and environmental factors need to be exploited to the maximum.
   
Natural lighting should be consistent part of the architectural design process.
   
Water resources must be used wisely, also recovering rainwater to use for irrigation or for the toilet.
   
Air pollutants are reduced.

Design according to the principles of ecological means then place man and his health at the center of the design choices of building and living.
 

BIOCLIMATIC ARCHITECTURE

It constructs according to the climatic conditions of the place, as it has always been done in the past, taking advantage of the climate, orientation, sunning chin and raw materials.
Today there is no longer typing everywhere, but in every part of the earth set themselves, the same types of buildings.

The work we do always meet these requirements. Please see the Houses and country villas, commercial and exhibition buildings and the various works carried out by our firm.
