Consider how many hours you spend inside one building or another over the course of a day. At home or at work, we spend most of our time inside enclosed spaces. Thus, for the sake of our well-being, it is essential that the interiors are healthy, safe and comfortable.
Illen wooden houses are built according to the principles of green building: they are healthy for man and at the same time respect nature.
A wooden house is
Wood is a natural material. All our wood is certified and treated exclusively with non-harmful substances. The same applies to the other materials: natural wood fibre, mineral wool, hemp fibre, plaster panelling. The exceptional insulating qualities of wooden structures prevent the formation of condensation and mould, limit thermal excursions and provide good sound insulation.
Wooden structures offer high levels of energy efficiency, which translate into reduces heating costs. The savings are guaranteed by the thermal-insulating properties of wooden walls coupled with the installation of high-efficiency climate control systems that use renewable sources. Reduced assembly times also help to maintain an excellent quality/price ratio.
Our wood is sourced exclusively from responsibly managed Alpine forests, it is processed with respect for the environment and does not require any type of chemical or industrial treatment. Compared to traditional building techniques, wooden houses take less time to construct, require less energy and produce less waste material. By reducing energy consumption, a wooden house reduces the quantity of harmful substances released into the atmosphere.
The construction site for a wooden house is as quick to set-up as it is to dismantle. And the there’s no need to wait before moving in, because the non-harmful substances that the wood and building materials are treated with have reduced emissions that do not require evaporation times.
Wood is the perfect material for constructing earthquake-proof buildings. Being light, it absorbs vibrations better and can withstand even very strong forces; thanks to its elastic nature, it deforms without breaking, thus limiting damage. Thanks to the special treatments applied to the construction materials, wooden houses are also fire-resistant.
Our houses are custom built. Before starting to create the project, the first thing we do is talk to our customers. Needs and tastes differ, which means that no two requests are alike. Our technical staff offer the maximum availability and flexibility during the design phase with the aim of creating a solution capable of transforming your dreams into reality.
