Low energy architecture / low energy living: Strategies for passive design at the urban and building scales

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Low energy architecture must be addressed in the context of low energy living; it must be addressed at the scale of urban/town fabric as well as that of individual buildings. Although limited guidelines addressing energy efficient rehabilitation of existing homes and town fabric exist, none of the resources address these issues from the point of view that can have the most impact, the occupant's. This paper presents a replicable process for low-energy architecture and living that takes into account occupant patterns as a design factor in passive design at the urban and building scales.
