Passive Design in Eosis Projects
Passive House is not only one of the world’s leading energy efficiency standards but also a construction concept made to build comfortable, environmentally friendly and affordable homes and buildings.
The relationship between the climatic conditions of a city and its architecture is an essential aspect for the construction industry.
The work of architecture benefits from the positive aspects of the climate where it is located and seeks to protect itself from inclement weather. Following these precepts, it is of vital importance to understand the architectural object as a modifier of the natural system, which is in turn modified by the characteristics of the environment in which it is inserted.
The implementation of passive strategies in architectural design works with the aim of limiting the demand for natural resources, especially energy, during the useful life of buildings. This approach eventually reduces fossil fuel use and associated greenhouse gas emissions during building operations. Passive design principles are inherent in climate-responsive design. This includes using the proper form, orientation, materials, daylight, and natural ventilation for the weather so cooling demand is reduced.
The greatest benefit of building with passive strategies is the reduced reliance on mechanical systems. With the implementation of these measures, the worked space could be classified as sustainable, while favoring the economic savings of the investor.
At Eosis we work to help achieve the comfort of building users, prioritizing the use of passive solutions that take advantage of the climate and surrounding conditions. In this way, the energy consumption associated with the building can be reduced and, therefore, the environmental impact linked to the emissions produced can be minimized.
