Pirelli famously coined the phrase “Power is nothing without control”. This concept can easily be applied to a passive solar design like a Passive House but extends well beyond building type, use, location, and climate zone when it comes to managing solar heat gains, daylighting, glare, privacy, and views.
Learn about the value and implementation of exterior motorized shading and the benefits of integrated and smart controls from industry leaders Warema via 475 High Performance Building Supply (motorized shades and integrated apertures), Loxone (smart building controls), and TE Studio (Passive House design).
