The project Sustainable Renovation examines the challenge of the current and future architectural renovation of Danish suburbs which were designed in the period from 1945 to 1973. The research project takes its starting point in the perspectives of energy optimization and the fact that the building process over the period changed from craftsmanship to industrialized production of housing. The aim is to present the context in which energy transformation has to be seen as an architectural question. The research field focuses on social housing blocks and expands the discussion of architecture from architectural heritage to energy efficiency and from architectural quality to sustainability. The first, second and third renovations are discussed from financial and sustainable view points. The role of housing related to the public energy supply system and the relation between the levels of renovation of the architectural heritage are examined as possible ideas for seeing the renovation field as an important synergy in society. The recommendation addresses balanced transformation.
