Comfort from every angle

The Multi Comfort concept is designed to deliver every kind of comfort, in any kind of building, anywhere in the world. And always in a sustainable and economical way.

Thermal Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings keep themselves at an optimal temperature using very little energy. They’re neither too hot nor too cold – so we can function comfortably, whatever we’re doing.

Visual Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings bring the outdoors in. They maximize daylight to create the right amount of light for specific tasks – whether it’s reading, performing surgery or working out at the gym.

Acoustic Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings have well-balanced sound environments. They actively protect us from unwanted exterior noise, and enhance those sounds that we do want to hear.

Indoor-Air Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings provide a constant supply of fresh, clean air. This creates an optimally healthy environment for us and reduces the impact of harmful pollutants.

In 2011, Saint-Gobain partnered with the Politehnica University of Bucharest (PUB) to build a pair of semi-detached MULTICOMFORT houses in the Romanian capital.

 The twin houses, located in a central area of Bucharest, were carefully designed to provide optimal all-round comfort in variable climatic conditions while also meeting Passive House standards.

Highlights and challenges

We successfully applied MULTICOMFORT principles to achieve Passive House certification for twin family homes that are purposefully built to be adaptable to Romanian climate conditions.
