English abstract:
This paper reports on the application of the
simulation techniques to address the district-level
energy implications of alternative living models in
the city of Vienna (Austria). In this context, the
present research project explores the related topics of
sustainability, energy efficiency, and cost
effectiveness. The hypothesized advantages of the
communal living models lie in the higher occupancy
density as well as shared use of certain spatial
resources. The present paper explores this potential
via numeric simulation. Thereby, a communal living
model is virtually integrated in existing houses in a
specific district of Vienna and compared with
conventional solutions.
