The Resort is located in an area characterised by a series of small single- and multi-family housing units. It is made up of three different lots, as well as the “boathouse lot”, all of which face the lake. The architectural composition of the buildings allows for the special and unique panorama to be enjoyed from all settings. With views of the mountains and the large stretch of water that is overlooked by one the most exclusive parts of Lake Como, in front of the Isola Comacina and the promontory from which rises the historic Villa del Balbianello. The Resort will also have a swimming pool, complete with its own facilities and accessories, positioned in the garden next to the homes, overlooking the lake and private beach. The proposed development has kept factors of sustainability in consideration, both in terms of the materials used and future energy savings. Mindful of issues of energy use, it is foreseen that the building will guaranty optimal thermal performance and energy efficiency. The building’s systems have been designed to obtain the maximum possible efficiency from today’s technology and make use of available alternative energy sources. In fact, the central heating system and production of hot water will use heat pumps that utilise water from the lake. Excluding, therefore, the use of combustibles for heating and cooling.
