Horizone Studio

Sustainable architecture

 

HORIZONE Studio is one of the founding members of the PLGBC Polish Green Building Council.
Polish Green Building Council (PLGBC) is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable design, construction and operations in the entire Poland.


For projects requiring the involvement of sustainable design consultants and LEED, BREEAM or DGNB certification, we cooperate with one of the leading specialists on the market: Visio Architects & Consultants.

The subject of green building is becoming a guideline for any investment measures. For years,  sustainable building is an object of interest for Horizone Studio’s architects. The experience in this matter was gained over the years thanks to working abroad, where the so-called triple bottom line framework has been practised for years. Thus,  naturally in the projects created by our office, we aim at solutions characteristic for green building.

Polish Green Building Council (PLGBC) is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable design, construction and operations in the entire Poland.

For projects requiring the involvement of sustainable design consultants and LEED, BREEAM or DGNB certification, we cooperate with one of the leading specialists on the market: Visio Architects & Consultants. In our studio, while working on projects, the Integral Design Process is implemented, which is promoted in the green building certification systems.  

In 2017 Horizone Studio took part in works regarding the report “Zdrowe Zielone Biura”, which reflects the trend on the Polish market and developers expectations on modern work space.

In 2018 the book “Zrównoważone budynki biurowe” was published, by PWN and PLGBC, which we are co-authors of.

For several years we are teaching “Architecture and green building” classes, as part od the post graduate studies in the Tadeusz Kościuszko University of Technology.

Our projects and implementations were awarded on several occasions for introducing innovative solutions regarding green building. For instance, the PLGBC Green Building Award in 2011 and 2016. The UMWM office building complex in Kraków was the first public   facility in Poland being subject to ecological certificates and receiving the BREEAM Excellent. In May 2018 the Textorial Park II in Łódź (BREEAM Excellent), designed by Horizone Studio, turned out to be the highest evaluated office building in Poland (according to the British certification BREEAM International NC 2016).

CASE STUDY – green solutions in the main building of the Polish Aviation Museum.

In the MLP building a wide range of green solutions has been used in order, to rationalize the usage of heating and cooling energy, to maximalize the usage of daily light and minimalise artificial lightning and to maximilize the utilisation of natural ventilation and the so-called mixed-mode ventilation.

In 2010 the Polish Aviation Building won in the PLGBC Green Building Awards as the best ecological building implemented in Poland – in the category green building without the certificate (more information on: http://horizone.com.pl/en/projects/museum-of-polish-aviation).
