OFF GRID RESIDENCE IN XIROKAMPI

Towards a Sustainable Project

THE PROJECT FOCUSED ON SUSTAINABILITY AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT OF THE RESIDENTIAL BUILDING, AS WELL AS THE FUNCTIONALITY AND THE INTELLIGENT ENERGY USE

The two storey stone house was erected in an olive grove far from any residential development. The building is composed of three main volumes, a two-storey oblong coated in a tiled roof and two smaller ground floor volumes combined with a Roman arch on the south house view. The supporting structure is masonry and all internal floors have a wooden body.

The residence electricity supply is dependent on solar panels, a wind turbine and a gas tank for a full coverage of the house functional needs. The off grid option, was the owner’s choice for sustainability as well as the economic benefit from the avoidance of the electricity network expansion costs.
