Abstract

The restoration of a historic landmark requires great design efforts to adapt the existing spaces to the new needs and to achieve an energy efficient building. The HVAC system have to respect the monument and allow the construction of a building in a high energy class, aiming a NZEB. This goal can be reached through careful integrated design, looking at the building as a whole, in which the passive and active thermoregulation mechanisms comple- ment each other and each new element perfectly fits into the existing building. The use of cutting-edge technologies, looking at the latest energy-saving standards, should be considered a building restoration tool. A correct energy analyses is crucial to define precisely the trend of energy requirements in the different redevelopment hypotheses and to identify the best technological solution. Our experience is that nearly always it is possible to comply in large part with the current legislation, identifying design solutions that ensure added value to the building, while preserving the architectural and artistic evidence. The article presents five projects that show that the goal of achieving high energy efficiency in the recovery of historic buildings can be reached. Targeted interventions on the building envelope and on the energy supply systems can be the solution of such a complex issue, assuring a technological and performance upgrade and giving new life to buildings of great value and of historical and artistic interest.
