Resumé

The “Comfort Houses” is one the most ambitious building project in passive single-family houses in Denmark until today. Ten houses have been designed and built by different consortiums. Besides fulfilling the German passive house standard the goal was to build the houses within Danish traditions of architecture and construction. The objective of the research presented in this paper is to compare the different design processes behind the making of passive houses in a Danish context. The processes are evaluated as regards to the “Integrated Design Process” and the “Traditional Design Process”. Analysing the data it shows that the majority of the consortiums have worked in an integrated manner, however there are still room for improvement. Additionally, the paper discusses the challenges of implementing the Integrated Design Process in practise and suggests ways of overcoming some of the barriers and thereby providing suggestions for future work with low energy houses.

N2 - The “Comfort Houses” project is the most ambitious building project for passive, single-family houses even undertaken in Denmark. Thus far, different consortiums have designed and built 10 houses. Besides fulfilling the German passive-house standard, the goal of the project was to build the houses within Danish tradition of architecture and construction. The objective of the research presented in this paper, is to compare the different design processes behind the making of passive houses in a Danish context. We evaluated the process with regard to the integrated and traditional design process. Data analysis showed that the majority of the consortiums worked in an integrated manner; though there was room for improvment. Additionally, the paper discusses the challanges of implementing the integrated design process in practice and suggests ways of overcomming some of the barriers . In doing so, we also provide suggestions for future work with low-energy houses.
