Title: Kindergarten in Altach, Austria

The town of Altach in western Austria built a kindergarten according to the passive house standard. The goals were to save energy and thereby reduce CO2 emissions as well as to provide children with a place to feel good and develop. Precise measurements enabled the computation of optimal room temperature and air quality. Through thermal insulation and automated ventilation, the annual energy requirement was reduced to 19,7 kWh/m².
