News release 03 December 2021

A model of the soon-to-be-finished LILU’s House which is designed to produce as much energy as occupants consume

Sustainable real estate developer House Habitat has selected BME’s Spanish subsidiary Isolana as partner to deliver all the construction materials for LILU’s House. The construction of this unique building has started in mid-November. Upon completion, LILU’s House will be the first wooden building with a Passivhaus Plus certificate in the region of Catalonia.

Project developer House Habitat has started the construction of LILU’s HOUSE on November 15 with assembling the CLT wooden structure. While the structure and roof were completed within five days, the whole building will be delivered in four to five months. Isolana provides the construction materials needed for the whole building process. The house is designed by architect Oriol Martínez, a regular collaborator of House Habitat and will consist of over 175 m2 distributed over two floors. Upon completion, LILU’s House will be multi-functionally used for residence, House Habitat’s headquarters and research unit for companies and universities.

House Habitat strives to achieve a Passivhaus Plus certificate for LILU’s House. According to the certificate, LILU’s House will produce at least as much renewable energy as its occupants will consume. With this approach, the project aspires to be a model in green building, energy efficiency and health protection, constantly providing data on parameters related to these fields.

LILU’s House is located in Abrera, a municipality located in the Baix Llobregat region of Barcelona, Spain.
