New school was built in 2014 in Holice, Czech Republic. The school is built in a passive house standard and the expected savings are up to 60%. The building has a very compact shape and floor plan of 2,000 m2. And the costs of building it in a passive house standard were about the same as for a normal building!
For the design of the Elementary Art School in Holice was considered the basic starting points:
- Significance of the building for the city in terms of society – an expression of the cultural policy
- The urban significance of the building in connection with the revitalization of public spaces
- Contemporaneity proposal – implementation of a sustainable building design
- Sustainability of operations in the future and economy of operation – the building is designed in the passive house standard
