There is an urgent need for updating the energy performance of the existing social housing stock. One can argue, however, that renovation is only a truly sustainable solution if the build-ing continues to provide quality dwellings for the people who inhabit it. As such, energy optimi-sation and attention to contemporary needs for dwelling go hand in hand. Nevertheless, existing research has identified an emphasis on technical, quantifiable values in contemporary renova-tion practice. The paper investigates if a circular tectonic approach to energy renovation can help articulate and assess to what degree the specific strategies for altering the construction serve to increase not only the energy efficiency of the building, but also the quality of living. The framework is exemplified through the case of a competition entry in Gellerup, Denmark. In closing, the paper discusses methodological challenges as well as perspectives for further devel-opment for use in interdisciplinary project teams.
