We bring
architecture and engineering together

E

    ntwined: this is how we see architecture and energy performance. Architectural decision making is a crucial groundwork for the building’s thermal efficiency: rephrasing the renowned axiom at the core of Scandinavian architecture, “functioning follows form”.

Entwine’s purpose is to translate architectonic design choices into energy performance information, to then enhance performances through architecture. We promote sustainable building design through a holistic, synergic collaboration, to break the boundaries between architecture and engineering.

What we do

1

SITE ANALYSIS

Understand site-specific climate patterns as a basis for strategic passive design.

2

MASSING

Optimise massing in coexistence of design and thermal efficiency.

3

ORIENTATION

Orientate the building to work optimally with sun, wind, views and context.

4

FENESTRATION

Explore size, number and thermo-optical characteristics of glazings to improve efficiency and comfort.

5

DETAIL

Combine aesthetics and function in details such as overhangs, shadings and other features.

Active collaborations

Entwine supports the sustainable development goals
