How can we make existing homes more sustainable and at the same time make residents more aware of their energy consumption? By choosing to adapt an old terraced house, the team showed how existing homes, of which there are 1.4 million in the Netherlands alone, can be transformed into sustainability.
The team did this by applying a 'second skin' including a glass construction on the sunny side. With this construction the house can run entirely on solar energy. With this, the students have created a very realistic concept and this house has distinguished itself from the new-build or opt-top homes. To meet the daylight requirements of the Solar Decathlon, several Ø 35 cm ECO Solatubes with TechLED were used. The bathroom is illuminated by a Ø 25 cm ECO.
The house can be viewed in Delft. For more information go to the website: www.pretaloger.nl
