The building, which incorporates planimetrically the type of the farm buildings, performs many functions with a high degree of flexibility of use: garage, playground, residence, carpentry workshop, deposits.  From the energy point of view the large surface of the cover has been entirely used for the placement of a photovoltaic system composed of panels (192 to 248 w) integrated to a storage system with batteries placed in the basement that ensure the supply of 96 Kw. The use of a heat pump for the production of heating and cooling makes it completely self-sufficient from the point of view of the energy and in part also the main dwelling to which the plant is connected. The energy produced is also used for charging of the two electric cars available for the families.
