Passive House standard

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The scope of the project is to promote, though architecture, the set-up of a collaborative community living in passive houses. In fact, the building has shared facilities, encouraging social contacts and individual space in a community managed the residents.   Each household is independent, but there is a common space for activities, such as crafts, guest rooms, and the provision by the community of three meals per week. As far as possible the scheme uses natural building materials.
