Plus-Energy Houses in Linköping, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture AB

In Linköping’s new district Vallastaden, Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture has built plus-energy houses with solar cells on the roof. The solution means that the houses produce more energy than needed and it is possible to sell the surplus to electricity companies.

Because the Vallastaden district is brand new, it was natural for us to get inspiration from old Linköping. We stuck to the beautiful windows which are typical of the stone city, and which often varied from floor to floor. Our reinterpretation of the windows scope, resulted in a modern variant with brass colored frames in expanded metal. Furthermore, the house is simple both in the choice of facade material and shape, where the frames are combined with a natural white concrete facade where the stucco has a thick texture in the living room. Against the courtyard, the facade consists of black fiber cement boards. A bicycle storage room with wooden facade and sedum roof where there is the opportunity to repair their bicycles is situated in this yard. The storage room also has an external built-in seating unit where gardening tools can be stored. The flats are bright and have ample storage. To achieve a higher floor height, there is a storage and sleeping loft on the entry floor.
