    Abstract

    About 21 percent of the total of 6.5 millions dwellings in The Netherlands are row houses from the period after the Second World War (1946-1976). These post-war row houses don't match up with present-day demands. The main goal is to upgrade these dwellings resulting in a larger usable area combined with more comfort and convenience and giving a better energy performance. The first goal is to develop a unit that can be placed at the front or at the back of a row house while the occupant stays in his dwelling. This unit contains, if wanted, a kitchen or (for the second floor) a bathroom. The occupant can choose for one, two or three units on top of each other. Choosing three units means a new roof (with solar collector and photovoltaic solar cells) which connects the third unit and the old roof. The second goal is to upgrade the thermal resistance of the complete dwelling with limited inconvenience for the occupant. Further, attention will be paid to day lighting, acoustic insulation and other problems. With this design project outdated houses can be recycled into modern, comfortable, spacious low energy sustainable buildings.
