The Ecological Condominium Vila Franca do Rosário is a residential project which aims to provide a healthy lifestyle, in quiet communion with nature.
This condominium has 14 villas with 3 bedrooms that are inserted into a huge green area where you can also find a biological pool and a set of organic vegetable gardens of subsistence.
Environmental concerns are also evident with the existence of several footpaths which discourage car travel within the spaces of the condominium.
Giving prevalence to renewable energy (solar and wind), mainly through the existence of photovoltaic panels, we achieve the condominium’s energy autonomy.
Rainwater is captured for later use in irrigation.
The distribution of the houses in the lot is made in order to minimize earth moving works. These houses consist of two volumes that benefit from different solar orientations, living rooms and kitchens turned west and bed rooms turned south and east. Two different types are proposed that differ only by the location of the rooms (living rooms above or below).
A large terrace allows the greatest benefit of the surroundings.
