Passivhaus

WHAT IS ‘PASSIVHAUS’

‘Passivhaus’ is a low energy construction standard. A Passivhaus building requires very little energy for heating or cooling, whilst providing a high level of comfort for the occupants.

Attention to detail, rigorous design and construction and an exacting certification process ensure that what is designed is built, and what is built performs as it was designed. This is achieved primarily through a fabric first approach, meaning high levels of thermal insulation, high levels of airtightness and the use of whole house Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR).

The thermal insulation requirements of Passivhaus demand that roof, wall and floor U values are equal to or less than 0.15 W/m2.K. Potton uses only the high performance building systems (Kingspan ULTIMA™) and Insulation products (Kingspan Kooltherm) which offers the thinnest commonly available insulation to achieve this building philosophy.

OUR PASSIVHAUS EXPERTISE

As part of the Kingspan Group of companies, Potton is ideally placed to understand the requirements of Passivhaus and how best to deliver this building philosphy.

Kingspan Insulation is also one of the founding members of the Passivhaus Trust.

Small spaces are upon us everywhere we look. Students, professionals and even families are all living the life of small square footage, and there are some design challenges that come along with the sacrifice of space. People have been cramming into studios in the 500 square foot mark and below, with many left wondering, how am I supposed to design my space?

 

Colour and functional furniture pieces, are great starters just to name a few. Smaller scaled pieces are great for rooms that are lacking floor space, and large pieces of art will help the room to look larger. If there’s an opportunity to get things elevated up off of the floor, that’s always a great option. You’ll see in our examples below just what works in a tiny studio apartment design, and decide for yourself what’s best in your own home.
