New residents invited to test out Chinese home built to Passive House Standard 

Chinese residents interested in investing in a home built to Passive House Standard have been presented with the opportunity to try out a residence in Changxing, Zhejiang Province to fully experience the level of living comfort afforded by this method of design.

The apartment hotel designed by Peter Ruge Architekten incorporates 46 residential units including four model apartments for use by potential investors. The Director of the Passive House Institute, Dr. Wolfgang Feist, stayed overnight at the project during a visit to China.

He said: “My stay there was very satisfying and I’m sure that many Chinese guests will also be impressed and convinced by the experience of an overnight stay in this Passive House building. A very large part of the global construction activity is currently taking place in China; consequently, it is all the more pleasing that the advantages of the Passive House Standard are also being recognised here.”

The scheme takes into account the extreme weather conditions in the region, including a very hot summer period, to ensure the comfort of residents on a year-round basis. The project therefore incorporates fixed shading elements, a well-insulated building envelope, a highly-efficient ventilation system, and triple glazing on floor-to-ceiling windows. Approximately 95% of the energy is saved compared to the standard residential building in China.

Over the second weekend in November (7-9), Passive House residents across the world will open their doors as part of an international programme which will enable more people to experience the advantages of this method of sustainable living.
