The 6th International Stage of ISOVER Multi-Comfort House Students Contest took place in the heart of the Alps, in Innsbruck from the 19th to the 22nd of May. The subject of this year’s annual ISOVER Multi-Comfort House student competition was the renovation of a five-floor warehouse in the Parisian quarter of Pantin. The participants were free to decide on the new function and use of the building but the suggested renovation solutions had to meet passive-house standards, i.e. highest thermal comfort with resultant energy and CO2 savings.

This year’s competition gathered students from 18 countries and 34 universities, in total more than 150 participants – students, professors, jury and ISOVER employees.  In total 46 projects were presented to the jury and the public.

The new comers from Estonia, Germany, Lithuania and Turkey joined the participants from: Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, United Kingdom and the USA.
