Healthy Buildings for People & Planet! – Active House is a vision of buildings that create healthier and more comfortable lives for their occupants without negative impact on the climate – moving us towards a cleaner, healthier and safer world.
The Active House principles – Comfort, Energy, Environment – were defined in 2011, by a global group of likeminded visionary leaders, who strongly believed in a holistic approach to building design.
Since then, the principles and specifications have been applied to numerous building types: single-family and multi-family residential, social housing, offices, schools and more. The results and testimonies by the actual users of these Active House buildings revealed the many positive effects of adhering to the principals, creating homes that are reassuringly efficient and very comfortable all seasons and for generations of use.
