The Re-certification takes place after two years from the date of opening of the facility and certify that the hotel management has successfully carried out the objectives of sustainability ensuring the quality standards to which they had undertaken.
ClimaHotel CasaClima the experience and wants to be an impetus for assessing the sustainability of buildings in relation to their function of use. The use of the structure is an important benchmark not only for energy analysis, but also to assess possible scenarios for planning and sustainable management. Who wants to run an analysis of sustainability balanced on a building and its impact on the environment in the future can not rely only to a partial assessment of the effects, but must establish a method that allows all stakeholders to undertake a journey measures are introduced where practicable, monitor and report on all spheres of influence connected, ecology, socio-cultural aspects and economics.
To recognize sustainability as a basic setting, it means to love the world. And to love the earth means, above all, to respect it.

Bella Vista Trafoi
Pre-Certification: a model study
In this sense, the architecture of the new hotel BELLA VISTA reflects the local resources: it is the heart of the nature of the national parks around the Stelvio, with its towering mountains surrounding the city Trafoi, the hotel was built with materials from the immediate surrounding area. The architecture is fed by the local culture, interprets and proposes new solutions. Like the lives of local people is completely determined by the nature, followed by the architectural forms of nature and her contact simultaneously.
Bella Vista’s dominance over the place transformed into a co-existence with the earth. Hence arises the architectural design of nature do not, but submits to her. BELLA VISTA so far has no dominant form, BELLA VISTA is the landscape itself – a soft, hilly terrain, which creates smooth forms in the meadows at the foot of the steeply rising mountain range Ortler place. At this location, the nature of their strength shows that the earth becomes a protective shell and thus the actual hostel.
