07/03/14 - Nestled into the pastoral landscape of Treviso, Italy, BioCasa_82 is a beautiful home that boasts some seriously energy-efficient technologies. Italian architect Rosario Picciotto designed the project, whilst Welldom dealt with the construction process. The building was made using 99% recyclable materials, and it's powered completely by renewable energy sources. Its tailor-made sustainable strategies were employed in a bid to secure LEED Platinum certification.
BioCasa_82 is one of the few private residences in the world to have privately conducted carbon footprint analysis with great results. Built for Diadora CEO, Enrico Moretti Polegato and his wife Claudia, the house reaches levels of sustainability rarely seen in residential architecture. With 117 points out of 136, according to the American protocol LEED Platinum, and 10 out of 11 points in regards to innovation in design, the building is a real gem in the European building practice. read more>>>
