Living in Light is a modular house concept based on the Active House design principles (http://www.activehouse.info).
Here the focus is on a healthy indoor climate and daylight as an essential element, an energy efficient housing and sustainable solutions. Kuben Management has been responsible for the project.
Nordicflexhouse has been responsible for the development and construction of the living in Light box.
Living in Light is made of human livability using an approach: People before buildings.
Living in Light / BOXEN (see figure above) is 50m2 but can be thought of as an apartment in a larger housing complex, as a modular building block.
The Living in Light box is a CO2 neutral Active test house, that aims to demonstrate innovative Living in Light solutions that also work with a summer garden, as a green conservatory. That provides the opportunity to extend the summer season and there is the possibility of local vegetable production. The house is also called the Envelope House.
Other innovative solutions are the modular design principle with over 80% produced in the factory but with high flexibility in expression and form. We work with Active Roof & Facade solutions, with solar heating and PV in a CO2 neutral house design. We work with a smart home solution for controlling the indoor climate, including mechanical ventilation integrated in the wall and natural ventilation when opening the skylight window (hybrid ventilation).
There are great export opportunities by working with a healthy indoor climate as the core factor in Living in light, with the possibility of local production of vegetables that also supports a healthy indoor climate. Detailed information of the project. Look here: brochure
