The water for the lakes and the pool comes from a well, while the water demand for irrigation comes from a tank in which rainwater is collected through a drainage system. The sustainable design allows the sun to warm up the house during winter and and to protect the house from the sun during summer. The use of geothermal energy saves energy for the cooling and heating systems. The rooms are covered with spiral that in conjunction with the solar panels on the rear side of the plot, heat the pool water. Photovoltaic panels have been fitted at the rear side of the plot for the production of electric power.
