Passive House Designer

What is a "Passive House"?

A certified "passive" house is a house complying with four specific criteria:
- heating requirement ≤ 15kWh/m².yr
- airtightness ≤ 0,6 h-1
- over-heating percentage ≤ 5%
- primary energy consumption ≤ 45 kWh/m².yr

More simply said…

A passive house requires approx. 1/4 the energy necessary to heat a standard new building.
Due to state-of-the-art airtightness and insulation level, the energy requirement for the heating system is approx. 1.5 liters of fuel per square meter with no overheating in the summer period.
A mechanical ventilation system with heating recovery ensures the intake of fresh air.

Why should you contact us to build you passive house?

A member of the "Passive Home Platform", mindful of environmental issues and energy efficiency, our agency will support your sustainable building project.

Due to our broad network of partners with an expertise in calculating the Energy Performance of buildings we will be able to optimize your project with the esthetic "architectural" design that makes a house truly "state-of-the-art".

Passive houses being rather expensive, we can offer you alternative building systems and/ or help you through the mazes of local subsidies and tax benefits as incentives for building your dream house.
