In the most sustainable educational building of the Netherlands, a special combination of energy-saving and energy-providing solutions has been implemented. A solar chimney combined with an underground labyrinth supplies natural ventilation. Together with the innovative heat pump (Carrier Aquaforce 30XW) and concrete core activation, this contributes to a comfortable indoor climate.
