Nowadays, the high rate of urban population growth due to immigration and scarcity of land has significantly increased the need for new high-rise dwellings. Meanwhile, the recent building regulations require buildings to be highly energy-efficient to reduce the building’s impact on the environment. However, the inherent characteristics of these...

The building sector is responsible for more than one third of resource consumption globally. Concerning the new construction, new regulations have been set, which impose that by 2020 all new buildings constructed within the EU should reach nearly zero-energy levels. The building envelope plays a strategic role in the energy and environmental...

Nowadays the use of renewable energy resources is a necessity. Approximately 13% of the energy spent in Greece comes from renewable energy resources, however a significantly higher percentage is essential in order to meet the European standards by 2020. A prompt solution is the in-situ energy generation. Additionally, the harmful emmisions of...

This research is primarily aimed at getting to know the material. Thin-glass is a product of recent developments within the glass-production industry, which has not yet found its place in the building industry. The material is still undergoing innovative changes to adapt it for use in various applications. We have not yet visualized or...

In de Paris Climate Agreement the goal is set to reach an energy neutral built environment by 2050. As a result, there is a high demand for energy neutral refurbishment of the existing housing stock. With the currently low refurbishment rate is it expected to take around 250 years to reach this goal. Due to the high initial investment costs of...

FabField is a building system that borrows most of its basic principles from more evolved and flexible industries, making use of digital fabrication methods (CNC milling) to produce all components that constitute a building. However, not all aspects have been fully thought of in the system: the integration of building services for FabField is...

To date, buildings use 40% of the world’s energy and emit 20% of the world’s CO2. Therefore the EU developed the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, that requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. This is only possible when the buildings themselves produce renewable energy. This requires ample use of...

Vacant property in The Netherlands, especially cultural heritage, can be attractive housing facilities when repurposed. However, such transformations are often very pricey one-off projects that do not easily allow for adaptations nor replications once installed. Pun aside, this rigidity characterizes the construction sector in general. It...

This master thesis describes and evaluates the development of living units for adaptive reuse. In many cases buildings that lose their function over time are destined to be demolished to make space for new estate, however these buildings are often ideal for adaptive reuse. The project was initiated due to a lack of appropriate solutions...

Compliance with energy zero buildings is forcing the buildings to transform into energetic plants, which combined with the need for a circular resource conscious economy, seeks for revised forms of a technical energy efficient façade and innovative business models. Due to this, BIPV technologies implementation in the façade are studied under the...

This research studies the use of thin glass on adaptive facade panels with the objective of increasing the knowledge of the use of this material in the built environment. Thin glass is a material that is harder, stronger and flexible than common glass. As some of the main current challenges faced in glass design are material use and building...

The goal to achieve energy neutral buildings in 2020 is getting closer. To achieve energy neutral buildings, not only new buildings have to be innovative, also the existing building stock has to be improved in terms of energy efficiency. Besides that, the occupants have to be involved in this process too, in the end they have to use the façade...
