The 3-storey detached house was completed in 2019 and was built as a mixed construction (solid / wood).    The basis for the planning is an energy-efficient and ecological construction, which ensures a sustainable lifestyle with low energy consumption and associated minimum energy costs.    The heating of the object takes place via an air heat pump. The installation of a comfort ventilation ensures fresh, healthy air.

In the EU, air pollution is responsible for around 400,000 premature deaths every year. Poor air quality can lead to lung cancer, strokes, heart attacks and acute respiratory diseases in children.    Poland’s Małopolska region, along with parts of Czechia and Slovakia, is one of Europe’s most polluted areas. Pollution is particularly heavy in winter when, to keep their homes warm, people burn coal and sometimes waste, releasing smog into the air that threatens people’s health.

This scheme will support these communities to deliver energy upgrades to nearly 700 homes and 570 community and commercial buildings in their local area, eliminating 34,676 tonnes of CO2 annually – this is the equivalent of taking more than 11,000 internal combustion engine cars off the road.   Reducing emissions from buildings is a key action under the government's Climate Action Plan.

We spend up to 90 percent of our time in buildings. This should already be a sufficient argument to make sure that buildings are not only understood as functional places to reside, but also as an environment, with people as the central focus. Buildings have a massive impact on our health, ability to recuperate and our productivity.
