The challenge for every new project is to reduce the energy demand, while respecting the architectural project.
Our approach is based on finding an optimal balance regarding the form factor, the building envelope composition, (glazed areas & insulated surfaces) and the technical details for eliminating thermal bridges.
Every decision is supported by simulations or calculations to compare objectively the potential of different variants.
