Thermal envelope of Sense houses
While the overall architecture of the house has a major impact on the energy efficiency, making a good thermal envelope is still the key method of building energy efficient houses.
Sense designs and produces both flat and volumetric timber modules, with great attention to every detail concerning the thermal envelope. We have designed our own system of construction details with minimal thermal bridges and efficient insulation while maintaining simple and quick installation technique.
Our buildings have very good air-tightness (measured with blowerdoor tests) and this applies to our volumetric modules aswell. This is something that is new to the industry. Due to the method of joining separate volumetric elements, it has been very difficult to create a continuous airtight layer. Now, we have solved it.
