Abstract [en]

Subject of the diploma project is to design nursing home for elder people. The thesis is based on architectural study that I worked out in my previous studies (Studio 3). The diploma project takes over basic parameters of that study - programme, location and vision of the project. However, due to the newly set goals the thesis assumes a completely new design.


The aim of the diploma project is integrated architectural, structural and energy design. The goal of the thesis is to design the building in the passive standard. This means achieving values:


  • the annual heat demand < 15 kWh per m² of floor area,
  • the annual demand of primary energy < 60 kWh per m² of floor area,
  • air temperature in rooms < 27°C.


The thesis assumes that the above ground parts of the building will be designed as wooden-structured; with exceptions where other solution would be more suitable (e.g. the entrance section of the building).
