The terrain, the air, the sun, present in the outdoor environment, offer possibilities often denied or forgotten in the design of the buildings. If we design to compensate the primary energy consumption with the production of renewable energy, we eventually achieve Zero Consumption.
In parallel, when the design is looking for zero consumption, taking advantage of the resources of the environment, it also increases air quality and comfort and decreases the necessary maintenance. Where there is pure air it is better to use it, natural light is preferable to artificial light and reducing the number of mechanical elements is almost always a good practice.
