Casa vacanze La Notte Apartment

The Night Apartment is housed in a building built in 2008 using techniques and philosophy of sustainable architecture. The need to feel in a "natural" ambient and to integrate as much as possible into the rural environment has led to innovative decisions for the construction and for the use of ecological materials.
Apart from the foundation base and the walls in contact with the ground, the building does not contain any reinforced concrete structures: a highly pollutant, harmful material that is also a source of electromagnetic smog due to the presence of iron. The structure of the building is formed by wooden walls (internal) and load bearing micro-pore perforated brick walls (external). The brick blocks are created by baking a mixture of clay and saw dust that creates thousands of pores useful both for insulation during winter as well as summer.
The floors and the roof are formed by an innovative system of multilayer wood. Fir boards are interlocked and pressed together without the use of glues and then treated with natural oils without the use of toxic paints. Both the insulation of the roof and the outer walls (overcoat) are formed by 10 cm thick panels of certified wood fiber. In addition, the roof is "ventilated" in order to naturally disperse the summer heat. Part of the first floor is covered by a roof garden that increases the degree of insulation of the house, absorbing the strong sunlight in summer.
Parts of the structure have Canadian red cedar siding strips not treated with any chemicals.
Plasters and paints used internally were manufactured using only materials that have as the base ingredient: hydraulic lime with the addition of pure natural pigments.
The building implements a radiant floor and wall heating system with water at low temperature and integrated solar panels, which also provides all the water sanitation.
In the garden there is a rainwater collection drum and the rainwater is reused for irrigation as well as for supplying the toilet water. In the back of the house there is a small garden that produces “organic” vegetables and herbs without the use of any chemical treatment. Special care is put into waste collection with the division of paper, plastic, glass, iron, and with the practice of composting that creates an excellent natural fertilizer for the garden.
