CHIP’s approach to sustainable housing design addresses both the scale of the city and the scale of the unit. The parametric model allows for large-scale market implementation due to its ability to adjust to a range of site conditions. On a smaller scale, CHIP fulfills multiple goals through parametric diagram. This process optimizes the balance of each goal into a cohesive unit. All services have been embedded in the building’s envelope. This liberates the majority of the volume for flexible use and programmed activity while increasing thermal performance to Passive House standards.
