PHPP ILLUSTRATED: A DESIGNER’S COMPANION TO THE PASSIVE HOUSE PLANNING PACKAGE BY SARAH LEWIS (2015)

“All architects hoping to design to the Passive House standard need to know how to use The Passive House Planning Package (PHPP): a set of 30+ linked Excel spreadsheets and a short manual, translated from German into English. This book, which is fully supported and endorsed by The Passivhaus Institut, provides much needed supplementary guidance for purchasers of the PHPP. Concise, user-friendly and attractively illustrated, this step-by-step book is ideal for practitioners and students looking to utilise the PHPP as a design tool. Readers will be empowered as they better understand the essential criteria for all low energy building schemes, including: the impact of orientation, envelop to treated-floor ratios, and shading effects on the energy balance.
