Photo: EcoholisticaThe Moraleda Passive House, built in 2009, hasnow received Passive House certification aftersuccessful adjustment of the ventilation system.An airtight envelope and airtight ventilationductwork was a big challenge for the projectarchitects and engineers in this pilot project. Itstands as the first certified Passive House inSpain meeting all the Passive House criteria andhas been followed by other single-family houses,which have recently been certified. Severalaspects set it apart: it’s location in hot and dryGranada, its construction made of containersand its aimed to be a zero heating and coolinghouse. PHPP results have been confirmed bythe monitoring results: it is a real PassiveHouse. Though its heating and cooling demandis not zero, it is certainly "nearly zero", orPassive.Casa Entre EncinasAusturias, SpainArchitect: Duque y Zamora ArchitectsIn Asturias Duque y Zamora Architects withCertified Passive House Designer Iván González,have designed and built a beautiful two-storeyCertified Passive House.The challenge was to reach a high level ofcompactness, minimising the thermal envelopeand thus the energy demand, withoutcompromising the principles of landscapeintegration and optimal relation with the naturalsurroundings. The result was a spectacular twostorey building taking advantage the existingslope.Casa Entre Encinas, north-east view.
