The abundant transparency required, however, solutions to control the incidence of light, with thermal acoustic tiles, hidden by plate bands, are on the entire roof to improve the building’s comfort and energy efficiency. The house also has sewage treatment, solar heater, cross ventilation, windows with heat control, polystyrene insulation, digital control of lighting, recycled wood, among other measures that make this building less harmful for the environment, and a great home.” How would you comment on the interior design features of this project?
