The farm “Sandwiesn” was the first farmstead to be awarded the so-called environmental prize of the region Trentino-Alto Adige.
Our house complies with the standards of Climate House A –Gold and utilises all the energy sources on site. A thermal heat pump is responsible for geothermal water heating, heating and cooling during summer time. The heat pump is fed by an 80 m² photovoltaic installation.
The regulated ventilation system retains room temperature and constantly aerates fresh air, without even having to open the windows. The big windows with heat protection glass guarantee a constant temperature and a lot of light.
All the surfaces of the interior are organic, the wall render is out of clay, the oaken floors are lubricated and the putty consists of lime and marble-flour.
The two greened flat roofs should restitute the green that we have used to build the structure on this area.
