The goal is to create a building with the smallest possible climate impact. As the actual construction process accounts for a very large portion of a project’s climate impact, it is important to ensure the building’s longevity.
- LEED Platinum by far
- Energy consumption 20 kWh/m²/year, largely produced in the house
- 4300 m³ wood in the structure
- Gluelam in window profiles. 5,5 km of aluminium profiles are avoided
- Flexibility and sutainability is created through good architecture
All the loadbearing structure above ground is wood.
The structure is stabilized by elevator shafts and emergency stairs in CLT and large crosses in the facade.
Avoids exposed wood except in ground level. For a natural variation, low maintainence and lowest possible envinonmental impact the facade is covered in slate from Norway. The rusting iron ore in the slate gives a variation in different lights and weathers.
The southern sides has 40 % photovoltaic cells to gain the energy that otherwise would have created too much heat inside.
