Saint-Gobain’s first MULTICOMFORT project in Spain involved the new build of a modern family home near Valencia.

Villa Vera is a stunning west-facing hill-top property, with panoramic views over the surrounding Calicanto region. MULTICOMFORT principles were successfully applied at every stage of the planning and build to create a light, spacious and energy efficient living space.

Highlights and challenges

 The aim of this particular project was to show that it is possible to build a house that offers optimal all-round comfort and energy efficiency performance – regardless of the location of the site or climate.
