Welcome to ActiveHouse UK
We spend 90% of our time indoors. ActiveHouse is a simple building design standard that offers a healthier and comfortable indoor climate for occupants without a negative impact on the climate or environment. Active House is a not-for-profit organisation founded globally in 2011.
Its holistic approach to building design balances Indoor Comfort (daylight, thermal environment, indoor air quality, acoustic quality), with Energy (demand, primary performance, and supply) and the Environment (sustainable construction and fresh water consumption).
The standard was launched globally in 2011 has been adopted in the construction industry and amongst architects, designers and planners. It was recently introduced to the UK.
The principles have been tested, and current specifications are based on real data, not just estimates. Here in the UK we are looking for early adopters to design to the ActiveHouse principles or assess existing projects against the baseline.
