General description

This is a contemporary approach, of a traditional in between neighbours andalousian “patio” house. Among the PH strategies, the patio is the climatic “heart” of the house, it has a glass motoriced roof, that is closed in winter creating a greenhouse effect, and open in summer creating the traditional cold well effect. The house uses also the support in the roof and in the patio of evaporative cooling, troughout plants, roof pool, and a “window fountain” in the patio. The PHPP calculations results are in accordance with the tradicional experience: This kind of shadowed patio houses in between neighbours are fresh, even in Sevilla, as the heating demand in winter is bigger than the cooling demand in summer.
