FEELING AT HOME
Aktivhaus builds houses designed to meet your needs. Every house is unique and unrepeatable, because it is built starting with you, from your idea of a home, your desires and your needs. In this way, Aktivhaus creates beautiful, functional and innovative buildings: always mindful of the essential relationship between human beings and their living spaces.
Aktivhaus aims at total comfort in the creation of its buildings: physiologically, visually, acoustically and thermally. It is also guaranteed by compliance with the standards UNI EN ISO 7730 and UNI EN 15251, which define the criteria for achieving personal psycho-physical comfort through the design of environments in terms of air quality, lighting, sound pressure and temperature. Comfort is therefore guaranteed scientifically, based on objective criteria adopted internationally.
WARMTH AND WELCOME
From the thermal comfort provided by accurate studies and measurements to the numerous technologies and construction techniques employed (such as the creation of a perfectly insulated building envelope, extremely energy efficient doors and windows, solar screening, radiant heating and cooling through heat pumps, and materials chosen with care and attention): everything you need to guarantee a feeling of continuous wellness without compromise.
Air quality and freshness are ensured by controlled mechanical ventilation systems that provide a constant flow of fresh air. This is a foresight that guarantees excellent conditions of hygiene in all the rooms and allows the capture of up to 95% of the heat from the outgoing air. Thanks to the use of natural materials and the latest technologies, the environment remains warm, clean and healthy.
LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF SILENCE
The construction and finishing elements are chosen to ensure maximum acoustic comfort: thanks to the use of sound-absorbing and acoustic insulation materials, the walls, floors, windows and doors are perfectly insulated; high standard installation techniques guarantee the reduction of all noise from external and internal areas.
LOOKS ALSO COUNT
Visual comfort is provided by careful lighting studies and the greatest possible use of natural light, for buildings that are biocompatible under every aspect.
BIOCOMPATIBILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY
Environmental care is a desire and a necessity: to optimise natural resources, create near zero impact buildings and respect nature. This is the challenge embraced by Aktivhaus, in its constant research into new technologies and construction techniques.
ENERGY AND NATURE
Taking advantage of renewable energy to reduce traditional forms of consumption, in order to optimise the use of natural resources and reduce running costs.
Photovoltaic panels, geothermal energy systems, technological innovations such as the “ZeroPositivo®” project, which ensures the recovery of the energy produced, are some examples of technologies that allow Aktivhaus to provide comfort, savings and sustainability.
Harmony and innovation: a valid alternative to traditional energy systems.
NATURAL ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS
Wood is a natural choice: it is cosy and attractive, a good insulator, durable, environmentally friendly, ecological and recyclable. It is also treated using natural products, including certified adhesives that are 100% non-toxic and contain no formaldehyde or solvents. Mindful of the future, Aktivhaus optimises resources and only uses timber from PEFC and FSC eco-certified forests. This is because wellness also includes respect for the environment.
Bioclimatic architecture studies new design solutions capable of ensuring conditions of comfort and minimising the use of traditional energy systems. This innovative approach includes analysis of the local area and study of how it might affect the property: urbanisation, solar radiation data and the evaluation of available energy sources are essential prerequisites. The building is viewed as a kind of living organism engaged in a continuous exchange with the external environment.
Living in an Aktivhaus building means occupying spaces designed to ensure human wellness and perfect biocompatibility. This is thanks to the design features, construction techniques, use of natural and non-toxic materials, bioclimatic studies, perfect thermal and acoustic insulation, high-efficiency systems and technological innovations. The result is an environment with a balanced, healthy and uniform microclimate.
