Social and ethical responsibility

The overall intention of the project was to expand the funcionality of the common house from a house for the private use of the individual inhabitants of the new housing community "Herstedlund" to a place of activity and gathering for the community as a whole.

Ressource efficiency and environmental impact

Though being a quite costly building in the building process, both from an economical and ressource point of view, the main objective of the enviromental considerations is to focus on the building as being efficient and durable over the course of a long lifespan.

Economic lifecycle perfomance

The various features, both low- and high-tec, of the building have been considered in a 30-year life span, but in the choice of materials and construction, the lifecycle of the building has been considered as longer.
