A large graphic consisting of five A0 panels.

Instead of taking the traditional route of creating separate drawings in order to describe the different strategies involved in the environmental design of the scheme: daylight, ventilation, heating, energy, water conservation, ecology, etc... we incorporated all of these into a single longitudinal section of the building. The result is an image that tells the environmental story of the project.

Read from left to right, we start with the energy piles that lie under the landscape surrounding the project. This is followed with a section that explains the relationship of the dwellings with the outside (light and ventilation). Next is a detail of the facade and after that another section showing the spatial quality of the atrium with its ETFE roof. Eventually we reach another set of apartments where the heating story, rain water management and artificial lighting are explained.
