In 2013, Saint-Gobain built the first MULTICOMFORT house in Belarus.

This four-person family house is situated on a 10.5 hectare plot, 30 miles from the capital of Belarus, Minsk.

The build combined MULTICOMFORT design with Passive House and Active House principles to achieve the highest standards of energy efficiency and indoor comfort.

Highlights and challenges
