NZEB - Near Zero-Energy Buildings

Aeropolis is an urban UFO. Its compact form sits square on street alignment south just to show it does belong there, discretely steps back west liberating a sunny plaza like a breather off the busy boulevard, and humbly aligns its cornice levels with the massive KINETIX next door. The resulting built form wraps itself around a federating patio ensuring optimal daylight entry for all occupants. So it is a respectful UFO.

Unfortunately, it is true - not all renovation works are of the quality we hope and pray for, and there’s a good reason for that – in general, professionals rarely have the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to deliver a quality renovation project: one that not only saves energy, but increases your comfort, ensures good air quality, benefits your health and productivity, and in the end - makes you happy and satisfied, being confident your money’s well spent.
