We are in a phase of evolutionary change in the history of living, due to the severe limitations of fossil energy resources. A process that will see the building and construction as a protagonist as a whole and will have an essential point of arrival: consume less energy and use renewable energy sources.
The mission of the LOW ENERGY ROOM project is to address all properties for tourist destinations that need to be adapted to the new directives issued by the European Community and the Italian State on the subject of energy performance of buildings.
With these premises, the working group gathered around the LOW ENERGY ROOM project works with a perfect integration between skills and a common dialogue to obtain the maximum result. Established by Arch. Renata Giacomini, from the engineering company Engteam s.r.l. and by Arch. Alberto Pasetti, coordinated by Giacomini Concept srl, proposes the design of a hotel room with technologically advanced contents that allow the reduction of renovation times, management and operating costs to offer the guest maximum comfort. A room where technique and aesthetics dialogue through constructive solutions of the various elements, like actors on a film set directed by an attentive director.
Another important object is to make all technologies aimed at reducing consumption visible and understandable, integrating them with the furnishing and interior design project. For example, through the use of plasterboard and soundproofing panels, the electrical and mechanical systems are housed in skin over the original masonry, saving demolition costs. Furthermore, the air conditioning with radiant panels on the wall and ceiling provides better conditions of well-being related to the exchange of heat by radiation and the low speed of the air in the room. The lighting design of the room and bathroom module is based on the optimization of the flows generated by LED or fluorescence sources, characterized by high luminous efficiencies. Consumption is reduced to what is strictly necessary, in addition to the significant reduction in maintenance costs. Furthermore, the soft lights are able to produce warmer or colder flows as desired, according to the specific needs of users. The photovoltaic shutter proves to be an intelligent and aesthetically pleasing solution, it guarantees a decrease in heat gains, partially contributing to the energy needs of the structure. The choice of materials for the furnishings and coverings is dictated by the principle of the use of renewable resources through controlled forestation.
The appointment with the vision of the realization of this innovative project is approaching: from 19 to 23 October next in Milan, within Host, the international exhibition of professional hospitality, HALL 2 STAND S32 T25 it will be possible to know all the details. The project will take shape thanks to the contribution of internationally renowned companies (see box below) that have actively contributed to the realization of the LOW ENERGY ROOM. We wrote it at the beginning: if you want (and well plan), energy saving can enter hotels, but also homes and buildings, as a welcome guest.
