The project of ESPINET/UBACH Arquitectos, of which AIA has made the proposal of facilities, has won the competition the restoration of the Celler de Vila-Seca
Behind the slogan NUA, the project from ESPINET/UBACH Arquitectes, in which AIA we have developed the MEP project, has resulted the winner of the competition to restore and convert the “noucentista” Cellar of Vila-Seca into a scenic space.
The project reaches the architectonic and patrimonial rehabilitation of the building by keeping and giving value to its totality, contemplating its maximum integration in the historical context of the old Cellar. The proposal integrates three factors to follow some practically null consume criteria: demand reduction systems (by the isolation and profit of the building synergies), high efficient production systems (geothermal and aerothermal systems associated to the different uses) and energy production by renewable fonts and the possibility of incorporating photovoltaic panels in the new volume of the scenic box. Regarding to the passive systems, the new volume of the scenic box enables to have opening elements in the highest part of the façade, encouraging the natural ventilation of the space during the non-activity moments. The same way, in winter, it is proposed to recirculate the hot air stratified in the highest part by the air handlers, seizing the heat recovery units.
