Students embrace Passivhaus designs

Another academic year is ending, and we are delighted to see a plethora of student designs championing Passivhaus within their designs.

2021 Passivhaus Student Competition

The winning design, The Art Works, designed by Emily-Rose Garnett from Oxford Brookes, provides a sustainable community hub. The proposal seeks to achieve the Passivhaus Premium standard, enhance biodiversity with the surrounding landscaping, and apply circular economy principles.
