In ARKIHAUS we are aware that electric power and domestic gas are very important services for the home, however, they are the elements that contribute most to the carbon footprint of a standard home.
We further consider that equipping the home with an alternative energy facility must be a profitable investment, economically speaking, in addition to allowing it to have a more reliable and secure energy system.
The passive house proposal is not exclusive to ARKIHAUS houses. The world is changing and there are countless success stories around the world, then a success story embodied in the Can Tanca house. Reality is being imposed worldwide and the costs of having a passive house are becoming cheaper every day.
