Applications of an Integrated Design Methodology for Regenerative Process of the Existing Buildings

By Renata Morbiducci and Clara Vite


The building sector has been identified as one of the key sectors to achieve the 20/20/20 targets of the EU. In particular, the existing buildings are considered as one of most potential sub-sectors to reach energy and raw materials savings. This research is integrated in this European context and the main goal is to look for solutions that can be fully integrated in the building system and that can optimize all the sustainable future aspects. A global approach is proposed to generate a comprehensive framework for the building renovation process. It's an "action guide" of the entire regenerative process already applied to different types of buildings. A summary of the results obtained in the buildings regeneration projects are presented
