CEPHEUS - Wohnkomfort ohne Heizung / Living Comfort without Heating
Passively-heated buildings are those in which a comfortable temperature can be maintained without heating or air-conditioning. Increasingly, residential and institutional buildings are being built with passive systems that provide comfort without negatively impacting the architecture. The nine buildings presented here are exemplary and can be built within the financial requirements of low-cost housing. Cepheus, a European-wide consortium of experts dedicated to passive house standards, offers examples that should be of interest to architects and engineers.
