It is for this reason that the Equinox Passive House has managed to grant itself the status of "Passive House“.

The main facade (the front one overlooking the sea) has a glass wall that allows maximum exposure to sunlight so as to ensure anatural lighting both in summer and winter: in summer the sun hits the window while in winter, the sun has a lower angle and hits the pool in the front atrium. The pool reflects the sun's rays so as to provide a natural lighting even in winter.

The solar panels are located on wooden support structures. For the heating, during the winter months, the house can count on an underground heat pump. The pool is also heated with clean energy derived from solar panels additional.
