Home for Life in Lystrup, Denmark by AART Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: AART Architects

Home for Life is located in Lystrup outside Denmark’s second-largest city, Aarhus, and leads the way to the next generation of climate-neutral buildings. It is designed as the world’s first Active House and is a result of a research and design development aimed at ensuring a necessary foothold in architecture in an anticipated low-carbon future. The 200m2 single family house is a CO2-neutral demonstration project, which systematically uses the energy from the sun. 7m2 solar collectors, 50m2 solar cells and a solar heat pump contribute to reduce the demand for energy, while strategically placed solar-cell operated roof windows offer a balanced amount of daylight to the bedrooms and the kitchen-dining room area. Furthermore, all roof windows have dynamic, solar-cell operated blinds on the inside and awnings on the outside.
