Applied architecture – by form, facade and materials – optimised for use of solar energy, daylight and natural ventilation may reduce the need for external energy for a building.
Integrated Design is design-methodology for optimal lifespan of a building. To meet the European regulations for Close to zero emmission in 2020 (NZEB), integrated design by all professions working together from the start to completion is a must.
The MATRID project is a Research and Development Project that has developed guidelines for Integrated Design. See http://www.integrateddesign.eu for more information.
