Pesaro, will be inaugurated at Easter the Europe's highest wood hotel.

Designed by architect Marco Gaudenzi, it will be built in just 2 months with laminated wood panels. 28 meters high, the hotel is distinguished by the high standards of sustainability and energy saving, and the use of natural materials from the area. Furthermore, the choice of wood is crucial because due to its high insulating capacity, reduce wastage and leakage, thereby limiting the use of air conditioning in summer and heating in winter. On the roof are installed two solar systems: a photovoltaic system and a heating system for producing hot water.

But the advantages of wood are not only limited to the aspects of sustainability and energy saving. In fact, in addition to the speed of construction, it appears to be quite resistant to earthquakes. Architects provide, and ensure, that the building can withstand a quake of magnitude 8.

Essentially all of these factors result in huge cost savings for hotel owners.
