Project description

The Plus Energy House of the Kroiss family in Austria is an ecological passive house. It is located in Thening, about 15 km west of Linz. It was constructed using prefabricated timber elements. The architect, Andreas Karlsreiter, was able to surpass the ambition of the Kroiss family to erect a net-zero energy house: the house produces more primary energy than it consumes.

7.1.1 Architectural concept

The building is compact and oriented to the south. The northern fa├žade has only one small window. A flexible interior was important and the solution was an ingenuously shaped ground floor plan which opens to the garden. More private areas are situated on the first floor.

Behind horizontal board siding made of spruce are high quality insulation, DHW panels, cellulose insulation and oriented strand board (OSB) panels.
