ECOCENTRE

The greenhouse

The hemispherical greenhouse – its shape allows for a more efficient use of energy and reduces the loss of heat. It uses 20% less energy than traditional greenhouses, and it can be used from early spring to late autumn without the necessity to heat it.

It was built in 1901 and is made of wood and stone.

The ecological technologies that are used in this house include: solar-thermal collectors – these use solar energy to heat water and provide hot water from spring to autumn (around 6 months). One flat collector (one metre by two metres) heats 80 to 100 litres of water – the amount that can be accumulated in an average boiler.
