Abstract: The definition of the different strategies of airtightness and diffusion of water vapor through the envelope acquire fundamental relevance when it comes to meeting the demand and comfort criteria for the Passivhaus Certification. Through a tour of three buildings built with different wooden structural systems, the different airtightness and water vapor diffusion strategies will be explained depending on the different structural systems used.

Key words: cross-laminated timber, passivhaus, air tightness, vapor diffusion
