ABSTRACT
In order to fulfill the european and world wide directives for the energy economy, an esential part belong to the construction sector stakeholders. In some cases, the
constructive solutions to reduce energy consumption adversely affect indoor
environmental quality, creating imbalances in the way of achieving natural ventilation. Thus, during doctoral study of the author on the buildings ventilation problem and building elements ventilation, in terms of comfort, air quality and energy efficiency, was born the idea of an independent systems combination, that are specific to passive buildings, using a new concept - "permanent garden-façade ". This paper underline the solution of combining two already known and widely used systems: the ventilated glass façades and Canadian or Provençal well. The vegetation enhace the ambiental effect of this sistem and it may be located within interior ventilated façades or to outdoor of buildings envelope and is itself a natural air filter plant.

Keywords: scale physical model, Canadian / Provencal well, ventilated façade, energy saving, vertical gardens.
