This paper was published 31.08.2020. in REHVA Journal. REHVA is a HVAC association that develops and promotes energy efficient, safe and healthy technology for mechanical services of building. REHVA is the Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Associations, representing a network of more than 100.000 engineers from over 25 countries. Since 1963, the association is dedicated to the improvement of health, comfort and energy efficiency in all buildings and communities by facilitating knowledge exchange, supporting the development of related EU policies, and their national level implementation. 

ABSTRACT
Space design can be one of the strategies for designing low-energy and passive houses and buildings. Neolepenism is a new, internationally copyrighted type of energy efficient architecture with roots in the prehistoric culture of Lepenski Vir (Serbia). The author has previously presented the model of a small family house of neolepenism with a flat roof at 50th Congress and Exhibition of KGH in Belgrade in 2019 and wrote about the energy efficiency of the prehistoric architecture of Lepenski Vir, whose positive experiences he improved and optimized. This new industrial design could significantly contribute to the reduction of heat losses (in winter) or gains (during the summer season), reducing greenhouse gas emissions and saving building materials and thermal insulation, primarily by its compact shape, and to a lesser extent by utilization favorable orientation, by digging in earth, application of green roofs and aerodynamic shape. In this way, neolepenism could have a positive impact on global warming and climate change as a passive means of protection.

Neolepenism house in the Museum Lepenski Vir, short video

The author of Neolepenism house visited the Museum Lepenski Vir on the Friday, 28th of August 2020. Here is a short presentation of the model of Neolepenism house at the archeological site, which was the model for this new energy efficient architecture. Neolepenism house architecture can respond to challenges of Climate changes and Global warming.
