Title: Buildings with flexibility and charm

Building energy efficient houses that comply with "passive house" standards and with high living quality is no longer a complicated matter: with pre-fabricated elements from the sanitary block to walls, roof and a "room-box" houses using thermal insulation, resin cladding panels that are ready for installation complete with doors, windows and balconies a New Age of building has started. The idea for such systems-built housing incorporating a high degree of flexibility and energy efficiency based on production line principles comes from the Austrian company in Götzis/ Tyrol. The project is a refreshing example of how tradition can be blended with conventional tastes applying the principles of the automotive industries with a perfect and innovative outcome. Applicable to one or more family houses and more storey buildings.
