For these thirteen ecological, comfortable and energy-efficient urban housing units, the energy need is only 14 kWh/m².yr (Brussels average: 150).
In terms of primary energy performance, a "zero energy" level is achieved, thanks to, among other things, a shell fulfilling the passive housing criteria and renewable energy production. A colza oil cogeneration boiler that allows the discharge of 13.5 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere to be avoided has been installed on this site, and 12 m2 of photovoltaic panels supply the electricity needs.
These housing units are distributed over two buildings connected by an interior courtyard. The façades of the Globe project are adorned with climbing plants. In addition to their limited acoustic effect, they provide in particular an enrichment of biodiversity and a positive effect on the water cycle and the air quality in the environs.
The most efficient household appliances have been chosen, in particular an induction cooker and a clothes dryer with an internal heat pump.
