Atelier Sosnowska, Warsaw, Poland

During schematic design, a sustainability concept was developed and proposed for the Altelier Sosnowska in Warsaw, which is based on the following fundamental building qualities:

  • Well performing building envelope
  • South facade fully glazed, translucent, heating bench. North facade fully glazed, transparent
  • Controlling solar gains through the south facade by movable ventilated high reflective internal shades with a low-e coating towards the room
  • Exhaust fan supported cross ventilation to exhaust external and internal heat gains
  • Conditioning by radiant floor with low heating temperatures
  • Energy supply via geothermical heat pump system
  • Artificial lighting optimized to achieve high visual comfort
