Model Home 2020 – one year on

This report presents the post-occupancy evaluation of five families in Germany, Austria, France and the UK living for a year in houses which are part of the Model Home 2020 project, an experiment launched by the VELUX Group to contribute actively to the development of sustainable buildings of the future. In general, the families reported that their expectations were fulfilled. The occupants in each of the houses reported high satisfaction with the indoor environment, improved wellbeing and fewer sick days, improved sleep quality and that the house automation was easy to use. The report also notes how physical measurements were made in all rooms, revealing that the houses had high daylight levels but did not overheat.
