Okay, back to the regularly scheduled eco-architectural ogling. It was recently announced that Team +, a collective of several Danish architectural firms, has won a green residential design competition in Denmark called Housing +. The mission of the competition was to design a zero-energy residential structure that is both high quality and super sustainable. Team +’s sun-drenched, solar-powered design, Bolig +, will begin construction next year in the city of Aalborg.
The jury of the Housing+ competition explains what gave Bolag+ the winning edge:
Good daylight, flexible dwellings in a compact, well insulated and tight building, designed to gain maximum benefit from the sun without overheating. A building complex fitted with the best technical solutions linking user behaviour, passive solar gain and the local fossil energy supply.
