Passive House

Office building built to the passive house standard with component activation for heating and cooling

When the project was carried out, the 8,000 m² office building was one of the largest office buildings built to passive house standards in the world. The energy concept includes concrete core activation for geothermal cooling in summer and outdoor air preheating in winter. The thermal inertia of the concrete core requires a well thought-out control concept.
