Luis de Garrido shared with us another project, the Onofre House, in Valencia. [Google-translated from Spanish] The site has an elongated shape, and the urban ordinances require the design of a rectangular housing. For this reason, it restricts the ability bioclimatic housing, ie reduces the ability of cooling or heating, if pampered, due to its architectural design, without technological devices.

Since they could not control how outside the house, the only possibility that remains to behave in a bioclimatic acceptable, is to control the entry of solar radiation by internal holes, like a patio.

Thus, they have provided two large courtyards oval (with north-south) by entering a controlled manner, the solar radiation. Thus, it enables all the rooms of the house with natural lighting and that the home has a certain capacity for greenhouse heated by direct solar radiation. The green roof is integrated into the hillside, and is an extension of it. Thus, it enables owners walk, albeit on housing, since the plot has a huge slope.
