Title: Passive Solar House in Vienna, Austria
The particular value of this project is the low construction costs in the face of highest claims regarding the passive solar house standard. This was achieved through the cooperation of different fields in an integral planning process. The utilization of comprehensive and dynamic simulation methods made it possible to evaluate the overall technical requirements for ventilation, heating and building construction. Different aspects such as apartment occupancy, behavior of users, room climate and safety of energy supply were kept in mind.
