RenovActive is a renovation project which took place in Brussels based on the concept of Climate Renovation that implies achieving an excellent indoor climate as well as a high energy performance. The house belongs to a social housing association and is renovated within the financial frame for social housing in Brussels, and renovated using standard solutions and products to facilitate future replications of the result. Seven generic replicable elements were applied; these elements can be used in other renovation projects and are described in the paper. The house is equipped with a mechanical extract ventilation system for winter use, and demand-controlled natural ventilation for warm periods and peak loads during winter. The house is occupied by a family, and physical measurements as well as social scientific enquiries are carried out during a two-year period from June 2017.
