One of the great things about Passive House buildings is that they can provide havens of comfort, clean air, and energy efficiency while also delighting occupants with generous natural light. That’s why we’re so happy to announce that LAMILUX, a global leader in high performance skylights, has joined the Passive House Accelerator as Patron Sponsor. LAMILUX’s skylights offer exceptional thermal performance and airtightness to actively manage energy in a building for the benefit of people’s health and the health of the planet.
“Passive House buildings—whether they be schools, offices, or homes—are good for the people that inhabit them,” said Zack Semke, director of Passive House Accelerator. “This well-being comes thanks to qualities like clean air, healthy humidity, and thermal comfort, no question. But equally important is access to daylight and visual connections between inside and outside. LAMILUX makes this possible with PHI-certified skylights, and we’re so happy to count the firm as a partner at the Accelerator.”
While based in Germany, LAMILIUX is truly a global company with product offerings available to Passive House and high performance building advocates in Australia, Canada, the UK, and USA. As such, they plan on sharing more international project examples with the Passive House Accelerator audience. Through their partnership with 475 High Performance Building Supply, LAMILUX skylights were highlighted in this Passive House Accelerator article of a beautifully renovated LoadingDock5 project on Long Island.
"We've worked with LAMILUX to provide Passive House Certified and high performance daylighting across North America for nearly a decade now," said 475 Daylighting Product Consultant Jeremy Latriano. "We're excited to extend this shared commitment to promoting Passive House building practices to include sponsorship in Passive House Accelerator. And we're looking forward using the Accelerator platform as a venue to present the great work of all the LAMILUX partners around the world."
