Green Zero Hotel, the first ecology-related hotel


in the pursuit of traveling experiences, Green Zero Hotel offers a unique exploration of a new, alternative accommodation way which is based on ecological lifestyle and energy saving.

 

Makridis Associates Architects introduced the first hotel unit whose parts are constructed off worksite; they are transferred, composed and assembled on the ground of interest. Green Zero Hotel is characterized by zero or almost zero energy consumption thus covering all energy requirements.

The innovative project was presented during the hotel equipment fair, Hotelia last November. In times when modern traveler has the ability to make conscious choices, evaluate and rate the hospitality spaces, the selection criteria are based on more and more specialized factors such as: concept originality, modern function of spaces, space flexibility so as they can be converted, environment protection, sustainability, innovative technology use etc.

Goal of the architectural team, in cooperation with TIF-HELEXPO and Interiors from Greece was the bioclimatic design of a premanufactured, structural hotel unit of zero energy consumption which will be able to be easily constructed, depending on the owner’s demands and needs, and being quickly, easily and economically transferred and assembled in situ. All used materials are ecological, recycling and produced by local producers or they have low integrated energy.

Green Zero Hotel, apart from its original philosophy, offers the ability of an exceptional quick construction, even at the most remote places. At the same time, the cost is extremely low when compared to the conventional constructions without lacking in luxury and careful construction.

The shape of the model hotel came up by the attempt of minimizing the static body and maximizing the envelope protection from natural phenomena. The external envelope of each unit consists of special non-combustible boards which have the appropriate waterproof membranes and heat insulating slabs. The main rooms are oriented towards south and have large openings while the north-oriented rooms have limited openings and size. Shading systems allow to winter sun pass into the internal space thus ensuring for generous portions of heat.

In the surrounding space, a geothermal zone can be installed which, if connected to a heating pump, it can provide heating and cooling through an underfloor heating-cooling system. Finally, concerning the first material saving, rainwater collection and storage systems can be installed which are used for the watering of the planted walls and the surrounding space of the construction.
