Passive houses in Lääne-Virumaa

Two very energy efficient houses in Lääne-Virumaa. The main building is designed and manufactured as a certifiable passive house and the smaller neighbouring building as a nearly passive house (due to it being smaller).

Both of these houses exhibit very good air-tightness. The main building is tested as n50 = 0,22 h 1/h and the smaller house had  n50 = 0,42 h 1/h as the blower-door test result.

These houses are an example of more rural design and utilise some Estonian traditional architectural elements, such as a pitched roof.
