The scope of the current paper is to present two buildingprojects that have been designed within 2006 by Gavalas Architects & Associates. On both of them, the main target was to produce a result of high functionality and innovative aesthetics while resulting a low-energy building, using mainly simple passive systems, providingthe best possible environment for the occupants. From a sustainability point of view, the main targets are: To reduce the energy consumption for heating during winter season and for cooling during summer season. To reduce the artificial lights load by providing good quality of natural daylight throughout the year. To apply passive and active systems producing energy or improving even further the internal conditions quality.
