FIRSTlife goes urban!

We have enrolled the Solar Decathlon Europe 21!

About the project

Project FIRSTlife is the competition project of the Czech Technical University in Prague for the Solar Decathlon Europe 21. It aims at Feasible and Innovative Residences for Student Life.
The main motivation of the project is the problem of high prices and overall unavailability of apartments in Prague. This affects the generation of the young people, especially the students very hard. The student dormitories are regularly full, and the offer does not cover the demand. These circumstances bring these people to formidable life situations.
FIRSTlife aims at development of the new accommodation capacities for the focus group by extension of the existing buildings of dormitories. These buildings were built mostly at the end of 20th century and many of them need retrofit especially towards the decrease of building energy consumption. The benefit of application of FIRSTlife solution will be also in improvement of original building’s performance.
