Building a Passive House

This book describes step-by-step the entire building process of a passive, energy-efficient house in a Mediterranean climate. It chronicles the creation of the Fiorita Passive House in Cesena, Italy, offering designers valuable tips and practical advice for their own projects. Written as a logbook, it not only provides essential technical information but is also an exciting story of the challenges encountered and the solutions that were found.
'How and where do I start when building a passive house? Do I need consultants? Will it cost too much? What precautions should I take in a Mediterranean region? What tools do I need? I want to build in wood, but what technical solutions should I use? What must I do regarding plants and equipment? And then, finally, will it really work?' These and many other questions filled the head of the author and designer when he tried his hand at building a passive house in the Mediterranean.
The designer, S. Piraccini, had long sought a book that would answer these answers - in vain. So he decided to brave these dangerous waters alone, and after successfully completing his project, he decided to write a book to help others in the same situation. The book is accompanied by detailed information on building physics and HVAC systems by his fellow architect, K. Fabbri. Stefano Piraccini. (Cesena, 1976) Architect and PhD in Architecture (Building Technology), carries out his design work, dealing with issues such as environmental sustainability, nZEB (near Zero Energy Buildings) and technological innovation. His projects have won design competitions, exhibitions, architectural awards and are found in publications.
