The Triangulum Project is one of the first Smart Cities and Communities (SCC1) Lighthouse projects under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme for research and innovation, developing urban laboratories in Eindhoven (NL), Manchester (UK) and Stavanger (NO). These labs serve as testbeds where new technologies and innovative approaches integrating energy, transport and ICTs1 solutions are tested so that successful cases can be replicated in other areas of the city and beyond. In Eindhoven, one of the objectives is to change the concept of the Eckart-Vaartbroek neighbourhood from a low-priced housing area to a modern, energy-efficient one (approx. 15,000 m² of living area). With an ICT-based 3D BIM tool (WoonConnect) the tenants can customise energy-retrofit packages for their dwellings. Within the combinations, the residents can choose between options that include insulation, improved glazing, solar panels and increased use of renewable energy. Furthermore, the co-creative approach aims at raising awareness of the opportunities for reducing the energy bill, including recommendations such as changing human behaviour. Thus, it allows all parties to identify appropriate measures to be taken to achieve maximum energy savings. At the same time, the tool intends to empower the user through the architectural design process and to enhance citizen engagement. During the project lifetime, this neighbourhood is turning towards a renovated and sustainable district. The experience of Eindhoven in implementing this solution provides a starting point for initiating replication of similar projects in any city willing to invest and promote smart participation and citizen participation in planning and implementation. This paper explores Eckart Vaartbroek's dwelling refurbishment use-case as a reference for a co-creative process of architecture and urbanism using ICT and 3D BIM-based solutions.
