|Here you can download a detailed description of the first Passive House certified in Catalunya:
It may come as a surprise that Passive Houses are also possible in a Mediterranean climate: Here is the first experience from Catalunya, where carpenter Albert Fargas (FARHAUS) achieved a pure cube of timber, with very high thermal comfort in summer and in winter. Payback time of the additional cost of construction is estimated to be less than 10 years.
Energiehaus performed the Passive House design for this project. The Blower Door test was passed with a result of 0.6@50PA. The occpuant is very satisfied with his home. We are now ready for more Passive House buildings in hot climates.
