 Description
A passive house can simply be defined as one where a heating energy demand of 15kWh/m2/year is achieved. Judging from its outer appearance alone, a passive house can easily be designed to resemble a conventional home but what we find is that careful attention to detail is the key to ensuring a durable low energy building. Meticulous planning is indispensable, as is an awareness that simple shapes are far more easily made airtight and highly insulated than are complex ones. This issue includes a number of features on this very subject.
