Abstract

The housing complex as a field for sustainable architectural design.
A housing complex, consisting of several homes build together as a single development, has great potential for sustainable architectural design. Due to its size, the housing complex may constitute its own microclimate and topography, which can benefit climate mitigation and climate adaptation crucial to environmental sustainability. With its level of scale mid between the home and the city, it connects the private and the public, which is crucial to social sustainability. The fact that it is a single development means that you can design for all this in one take if you are able to combine closely the physical, social and aesthetic aspects of architecture in an integrated design. A holistic view on construction and economy may offer long-term savings addressing also economical sustainability. It spite of such broad potential, housing complex design rarely recognizes as a mean of sustainability. This paper intends to shed some light on the sustainable architectural potentials including aspects as urban density, microclimate, outdoor stay, private and public zones, exergy conditions and passive solar.
Keywords: Housing complex, architecture, environmental and social sustainability, integrated design.
