Gi­bral­tar Guest­hou­se: stu­dent flats in Go­then­burg

Building warrant had been granted for the construction of a temporary block of flats with 100 units on the grounds of the parking lots of Chalmers University. Since the warrant is for 15 years altogether only, it was built in such a way that the flats can be re-used at another place afterwards.

De­spi­te un­i­que chal­len­ges po­sed by obstacles such as the tro­pi­cal Thai cli­ma­te, the in­tro­duc­ti­on of new me­thods of ven­ti­la­ti­on and a li­mi­ted bud­get, this Bang­kok pro­ject was ab­le to suc­cess­ful­ly im­ple­ment new stra­te­gies to ach­ie­ve its' goals of pro­vi­ding both en­er­gy sa­vings and af­for­da­ble hou­sing.

Pas­si­ve Hou­se in Cold Cli­ma­tes

Alt­hough it can be chal­len­ging to meet the Pas­si­ve Hou­se Stan­dard in a cold cli­ma­te, the­se pro­jects de­mons­tra­te that it is most de­fi­ni­te­ly pos­si­ble. The over­whel­ming po­si­ti­ve feed­back from cli­ents and the end users on en­er­gy sa­vings and high com­fort le­vels con­firm it is worth the ef­fort.
