In theory, sustainable housing is about future forms of living. In reality, however, it deals with the application of state-of-the-art technologies to traditional typologies. If one looks at the technologies and techniques currently applied in the field of sustainable architecture, it becomes evident that few of these actually have something to do with architecture as a space defining entity. The majority either deals with the application of external mechanical systems or learned behaviour patterns, but ultimately, neither of these two are immediately connected to architecture itself and could be applied independently from any specific typology. Our project tries to prototypically examine how far space itself can help create an efficient sustainable single-housing unit without the immediate necessity for cutting-edge technologies.
