Active House and the need for a holistic approach

Although energy efficiency is certainly important when building a sustainable building, this report argues that we need a more holistic approach early on in the design process. As people spend 80-90% of their time indoors, there also needs to be a strong focus on the indoor environment and consequently the health of the occupants. The VELUX Group's Active House vision adopts this holistic approach and the paper presents a number of projects, detailing the design process and how daylight levels and indoor climates can be optimised.
