Abstract

The energy efficiency of the existing housing is the subject matter of this paper. Notably, we focus on a few designs that solved the thermal insulation problems. Their ways unobtrusively suggest new readings of the buildings: all these interpretations meet the current requirements but from various perspectives: technical-materic, requisite-functional and stylish-chromatic.
