Outcomes

Overview

The Alpine Space is rich of cultural heritage including historic architecture. Traditional Alpine architecture is often located in neglected areas and provide low levels of energy efficiency and comfort. The ATLAS project showed ways for sustainable development of historic structures. It developed amongst others a guide to an optimised renovation strategy that particularly considers sustainability aspects without forgetting about socio-economic impact and cultural values. The project provided methodologies and tools for municipalities and policy makers in the Alpine Space to implement optimal sustainable regional development policies and renovation strategies, focusing on the reduction of the ecological footprint and carbon emissions as well as the increase of energy efficiency of a historical building stock.
