A passive building in Antarctica

This is Princess Elisabeth, a research camp made in  Antarctica by Belgium sciences.

It was design and build using the PassivHaus principles, made from timber frame structure. The U-value of the walls is around 0.07W/m2K.

The buildings it’s maintaining it’s internal comfort only by solar gains, heat from people and electronics plus a small amount of heat.
