General description

GWLO is an ensemble of three passive single family houses and three clustered low energy houses where families of different ages/generations live in together. The houses are luxurious designed but completely thermal self-supporting with wood chips from the property in a central stove. The project is set up as an example for the region, because it: • is one of the first NZEB’s in the region based on Passive House design • is initiated by private clients who are committed to share lessons learned • shows how to build a lifecycle resistant NZEB • uses biomass and solar energy from the private property of the dwellings as a source of renewable energy

Energy efficiency and use of renewables

Two detached houses and one single family house combined with an office and a communal space are built as passive houses, three attached smaller dwellings just mis the standard due to unprofitable orientation and compactness. A central communal wood-chip- stove provides heat for heating and hot water-supply to all houses. Most indoor-climate- and building-functions such as sun- and rain protection and intrusion-protection are domotica-controlled. The construction-elements of one house are equipped with sensors to monitor temperature-courses and also groundwater-level is monitored.

Gross construction costs

1100,- (est.) (EUR/m² of Treated Floor Area)

Gross building strucutre + technical service costs

1300,-(est.) (EUR/m² of Treated Floor Area)
