We are certified in Passive House Design, otherwise known as Passivhaus and here at Dieppe Design we absolutely love this concept. You can help change the future and build a better planet for our future generations just by adhering to Passive House or Passivhaus standards!
Originating from Germany, Passive House is the most rigorous, voluntary building standard in the design and construction industry. This scientific assessment results in a building that requires 90% less heating and cooling energy compared to a conventional building. The benefits can’t be ignored:
There are five principals that a Passive House is designed and built under:
2. Thermal Insulation
3. Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV)
4. High Performance Windows
5. Thermal Bridge Free Construction
We incorporate these five principals into the design and documentation phases, achieving a beautiful personalised home that can be certified Passivhaus. Below are representations of these principals in our Passive House projects.
