sustainable building should be energy efficient and provide good indoor air
quality. It consists of low embodied energy and durable materials
(preferably local) and its costruction should include careful waste management.
|We propose a
holistic approach that
considers all relevant environmental issues. Our designs include creating a highly insulated,
thermal-bridge free and airtight building fabric using the whole house strategy.
|The internal layout and building's orientation towards the sun and the garden are vital elements as they influence both the energy performance and good indoor climate and thus the occupant's satisfaction.
