First Riko Passive house in Switzerland

We have built the first Riko Passive house in Cademario (canton of Ticino, Switzerland) for a Swiss architect. The single family house, measuring around 250m2 je built in accordance with the Minergie-P standardom. Even though the house has three external sliding doors and a chimney fireplace, we have achived the airtightness of n50=0,48 h-1 which is a great result for a Passive house. The house also has an interesting addition – a sensory cat door, which is mounted in the outer wall.
