Abstract

 This paper focuses on a study of window details from "The Comfort Houses" in relation to "traditional" Danish construction solutions. The aim is to evaluate different ways of solving a window detail and to identify both architectural and technical consequences. It is important to investigate both aspects of a detail because the best technical solution might not be the best architectural solution. A proposal from "The Comfort Houses" - a brick passive house, will be used as a basis.
