Home for Life was designed by AART Architects A/S is located in Lystrup outside Denmark’s second largest city. The 200 sq m single-family house is a CO2-neutral demonstration project, which systematically uses the energy from the sun. 7 sq m solar collectors, 50 sq m solar cells and a solar heat pump contribute to reducing 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.
The environmentally-friendly features makes Home for Life a distinctive sustainable project, since the house is designed to produce more energy than it consumes.
The construction of the house consists of timber framing above a concrete raft, while the floor tiles are a mosaic made from recycled glass and the building is clad externally in slate fixed battens.
