Villa Troglodyte : Environmental Laboratory
At a time when global warming is such a prevalent issue, this exceptional project by S.A.M. ENTERPRISES J.B. PASTOR & FILS is energy efficient, promoting natural energy sources including geothermal energy, solar energy and rainwater collection. It was designed by our company with a strong desire to respect the environmental issues as part of the Energy Transition driven by His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The “Villa Troglodyte” is spread over five levels. Access to the entrance is from the street by a footbridge overlooking the swimming pool. From the entrance, the void and the glass floors offer perspectives over the whole house. The living room and three bedrooms are on the upper floors served by a glass elevator.
Our Environmental Ambitions
J.B. PASTOR & FILS wishes to create a real Environmental Laboratory, searching for all technical solutions that are efficient in terms of energy, carbon footprint control and environmental neutrality, compatible with the constraints of the “Villa Troglodyte” and the site.
For this purpose, we are aiming at several environmental certificates and energy labels, each based on recognized and proven standards at regional and international levels:
– “Mediterranean Sustainable Buildings Label” (BDM) Gold level
– “BREEAM” certification Excellent level “Design Stage”
– Label “EFFINERGIE +” for a low consumption building. The consumption of our building will ultimately be 40% lower than the conventional consumption of such a structure.
More than just a house, the “Villa Troglodyte” is for us the occasion to reflect on the space and energy. This project involves some surveys and studies of what could be the house of tomorrow. S.A.M. ENTERPRISES J.B. PASTOR & FILS is proud to highlight through this operation the importance of the protection of the environment in its construction approach.
