Title: Public Residential Building for Renting to Youth
The project focuses on the construction of a public residential building for renting to the youth; the building includes sustainable technology such as solar devices, hot water preparation and new heating technologies to lower total energy consumption. All in all, it was possible to save about 43% of energy in comparison to a similar building in Catalonia. The apartments are also designed to satisfy the requirements of youth .
