Winner and Awards
The overall winner is…!
From these projects the overall winner was selected by the jury of experts. The jury appointed Copenhagen International School as the overall winner of the Active House Awards. At the Awards ceremony, the Chair of the jury, professor Marco Imperadori commented:
At unanimity, the Jury voted Copenhagen International School as the overall winner of the competition, rewarding its social impact. Besides, it clearly embodies all the three Active House aspects: Energy, Comfort, Environment, in a very clever and expressive way.
Volumes, inner and outer, skins with integrated PV, openings for natural light and ventilation, insulation, thermal delay, clever energy strategies make this building to be a visible Milestone for any future design related to sustainable buildings.
Casa sul Parco is a very elegant, clever and contemporary building inside an historical park and city center in Fidenza (Italy). The volumes are very well connected, and Energy strategies are well balanced with morphology and aesthetics. This shows how energy Efficient Buildings can be expressive and unique, attracting developers and stimulating new clients.
Very elegant and creative design which shows how a single family house can be designed in a small plot by a dialectic strategy between the outside shape (simple and compact) and the inner volumes (articulated and very well connected).
Extremely interesting building with a very nice articulation of volumes in a small shape. Interior design, double height spaces which can create a chimney effect in hot/middle seasons, beautiful inner light and also outside views make this small example a very creative one even in a small single family house.
Applying the Radar and AH approach to a Museum is a very clever and innovative way to show that AH principles are not limited to housing but also possible for more complex buildings. In this case the outside shape shows a compactness which is then very well solved in the inner spaces and always keeping in mind: energy, comfort and environment. Thus a very inspiring project indeed.
The project shows how is important design for education in a nice and articulated space with consciousness about energy approach and comfort by using natural/zenital light and possible natural ventilation.
