The technical, landscape and bioclimatic approach to the process of designing detached houses on the basis of Villarino de Sanabria, Zamora, Spain

Tomasz Malczyk,

Alejandra Sayans Jimenez


The paper presents the results of the work which inherently makes use of the coherent approach to the process of designing single-family detached housing. In the process of architectural planning, the authors have considered the analysis of the location, environmental and landscape qualities, renewable energy installation as well as construction materials along with the technology of erecting single-family houses. The design concept presented in the paper is of interdisciplinary character and integrates the design parameters belonging to the following fields: technology, landscape architecture, bio-climatics and renewable energy.

Słowa kluczowe: architecture, building, landscape, renewable energy
