Active House is a vision of buildings that creates healthy and comfortable lives for their occupants without negatively influencing the climate and environment. Active House proposes a target framework for how to design and renovate buildings that contribute positively to human health, safety and wellbeing by focusing on the indoor and outdoor environment and efficient use of energy.
The web portal aims to disperse the Active House vision, communicate specific Active House projects, and create a dynamic platform for knowledge, dialogue and networking. It is aimed at the construction industry, for instance architects, investors, construction companies and building material producers, and representatives of the research industry, authorities, politicians, and private house owners.
The portal allows for higher degree of user participation. Users can register as user, upload examples, research material, add comments, debate, suggest links, arrangements, events, etc. It is our ambition that the website will be used by other parties of the construction industry, and that it will grow to become a project under shared ownership.
