Passivhaus Marlegno is a single family house on two levels situated in Bolgare (BG), Northern Italy.
ECO-SUSTAINABILITY is the key word of this project: its structure consists in wooden load bearing walls and floors made of wooden joists assembled without glues, thanks to an innovative construction system called Tavego.
Raw materials come exclusively from Italian PEFC certified forests. This allows Marlegno to take full advantage of the ecological characteristics of a natural material such as wood, reducing GHG emissions and making the interior spaces healthier.
The ENERGY EFFICIENCY is ensured: the project is based on Passivhaus Institute standards such as air tightness, high thermal insulation, solar gains and CMV with heat recovery, in order to minimize energy consumptions and reduce the environmental impact.
Passivhaus Marlegno is ALWAYS CONNECTED: the internal network allows better management of facilities and consumption, avoiding waste and saving money.
The careful design of details, the brightness of spaces and the high aesthetic quality make Passivhaus Marlegno a healthy and comfortable home to live in.
