The two houses are located with easy access to public transport or a quick drive from Gothenburg, each on a large plot of land, next to forest and characteristics coastal landscape. The design is modern, yet inspired by the traditional form and styles of the surrounding houses. The homes are designed to suit the large family. The layout allows the five bedrooms to be more private and separated from the remaining house. Kitchen, dining and living areas are all connected to form big open spaces with generous ceiling heights. Windows stretching from floor to ridge height are letting natural light flow through the house.
The sustainable block work used are load bearing, easy to handle in the building process and resistant to fire and moisture. The exceptional insulation ability of the block work, together with windows with improved thermal transmittance and an efficient FTX-ventilation system are foundational for the Passive House concept. This way of building and the conscious use of materials generate more energy than the consumption of maintaining a comfortable indoor climate and the everyday use of electricity. This is not only a great economic saving, but also a step forward in preserving our natural resources.
