Passivehouse – Gaziantep Human Resources Center

Passivhaus or ‘Passive House’ is the fastest growing energy performance standard in the world with 30,000 buildings realised to date, the majority of those since 2000. The Passivhaus Standards strengths lie in the simplicity of its approach; build a house that has an excellent thermal performance, exceptional airtightness with mechanical ventilation.

This robust approach to building design allows the designer to minimise the ‘Heating Demand’ of the building and in some residential buildings only specify a heated towel rail as means of conventional heating, this heat can then be recovered and circulated by a Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR) unit.

As well as being an energy performance standard Passivhaus also provides excellent indoor air quality, this is achieved by reducing the air infiltration rates and supplying fresh air which is filtered and post heated by the MVHR unit.

Passive House  has been applied with all rules and certificatıon systems in  Gaziantep, Yüzüncüyıl Kültür Park for he first time in Turkey.

The German architecture company” r-m-p ” has given the professional support to the project as the  passive house technical specialist. On the other hand MOTTO TPU has been our project partner along the process.

Building will be having  mini auditorium and human resources functions withinself
