Buildings generate an extremely high energy consumption, and are the first CO2 emitting agent (30%) at a global scale. However, despite the amount of energy consumed, comfort conditions are not always guaranteed. Our goal is to make better buildings based on a three step process in each project that starts with minimising its energy demand, which is reinforced by implementing energy efficient systems and, finally, incorporating renewable energy sources.
Our services focus on the assessment of each architectural space within its context in order to obtain a deep understanding of its energy performance. For this, buildings are simulated as thermodynamic systems, taking into account all the conditionings affecting their performance: climate, location, orientation, geometry, materiality, occupancy patterns and internal heat gains. This way, we are able to implement design strategies for passive architecture with low energy consumption and low environmental impact.
i+i studio is a sustainable environmental design studio which aims for excellence in architecture, focusing on buildings’ energy efficiency and on the wellbeing of its occupants, while adding economical value to each project through its architectural quality. We are a dynamic practice with architectural background in different places, such as Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Canada and Singapore.
We are based in both, Lisbon and Madrid.
