Coocono Villas complex incorporates bioclimatic architectural design in both indoor and outdoor areas. Through this, the aim is to ensure thermal and visual comfort conditions, with the – as far as possible – extensive use of passive heating – cooling and lighting systems.

In order to achieve that, maximum use is made of solar energy, renewable energy sources, the local climate and, in particular, the microclimate of the area. A careful selection of all building materials has also been carried out and they have been distributed according to their properties, their usefulness, their naturalness, as well as their environmental friendliness.

Coocono Villas endorses the principles of ecology and sustainability by prioritizing the protection of the environment and the rational use of natural resources.

More specifically:

1) The precise eastern position – direction of the building, gives the opportunity to store “fresh” sun and solar power, flooding the space with light and thermal energy.

This thermal energy is “trapped” inside the rooms of the complex, depending on the season, and is retained for the rest of the day due to the “shell” that has been clad on all the external walls.

The largest facade of the building is oriented towards the south with a divergence of up to 30 degrees to the east.

The north-western side of the building is “caressed” by the northern Cycladic wind, the “Meltemi”, which maintains a thermal balance inside and outside the building.

2) The prominent use of natural wood from the Meranti type of wood for the pergolas, placed at a distance to achieve proper shading, natural ventilation and discreet brightness, to the Doussié type wooden surfaces, used for the deck of the pool and the outdoor shower, it is achieved enviromental friendliness, harmonization with the rest of the landscape and aesthetic excellence.

3) The use of tapestry made of natural materials, in most interiors, creates a calmness in the space and combines high aesthetics with the maintenance of sound and heat protection.

4) The exterior walls of the building have been clad with a “shell”. The use of certified thermo-insulating external frames and large openings, help to ensure natural daily light and heat energy.

5) The architectural structure of the building has the most suitable shape for a residence with elongation along the axis from east to west. It has large openings to the south and smaller openings to the north.

6) Passive heating systems are used, which operate without mechanical components or additional energy supply, but naturally heat and cool the building. These are: solar heating systems, natural ventilation and cooling systems and techniques, natural lighting techniques, cross-ventilation of the building, wooden shades.

With the above mentioned use of systems, the limited use of conventional heating units and air conditioning units is ensured.

In conclusion

Coocono Villas complex ensures natural sunlight during the winter months, protection from strong winds, without much relative loss of the view of the building, minimizing heat loss, protection from the summer sun, exploitation of the cool winds in the summer, and removal of excess heat in the summer months.

Thus, the appropriate conditions are provided so that residents can enjoy a mild – mild winter, but at the same time a cool summer, always respecting the natural environment and exploiting natural energy sources.
