ATLAS I Alpine Space

Advanced tools for low carbon and high quality development of historic architecture in the Alpine region The ATLAS project aims to (re)discover all traditional architecture (buildings and ensembles beyond the level of protection). These buildings are often located in neglected areas and offer low levels of energy efficiency and comfort.

The project aims to pave the way for sustainable development of historic structures. This includes the use and optimization of existing best practice solutions for building renovation and regional development. Stakeholders along the entire value chain and decision-makers* will be integrated into a network to ensure sustainability from a social, ecological and cultural perspective.

ATLAS is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Alpine Space Program.

Project flow

To achieve the defined objectives, ATLAS will provide tools such as an online decision support tool for green building renovation and a ToolKit for municipalities. Tailored training and dissemination activities such as the cross-border EnerCulTour and transnational workshops will ensure knowledge exchange and implementation of the project results. In addition, the project will lead to an increased number of high quality retrofits, enhancement of the cultural landscape and achievement of low carbon emission targets. Partners with expertise in energy efficiency, historic preservation and regional development will work closely together in ATLAS.
The direct involvement of the communities in the consortium is key to the development and implementation of the project results.

Project outcome

    • Increasing the number of high-quality renovations – taking into account historical and energy aspects
    • Improved living comfort and environmental footprint of traditional buildings
    • Capitalizing on best practice environmental renovations and available guidelines and research studies
    • Communities committed to renovating traditional buildings
    • Implement sustainable use of historic buildings into regional development strategies
    • Better informed building owners and planners
