The project deals with passive houses in a Danish context. The aim of the project has been to work with a low rise and high density settlement. Throughout the project, there has been given focus to the spatial qualities of the houses, as well as securing good conditions for establishing views. The project works with the interaction and connection of functional rooms that refers to two different types of occupants. The result is a settlement situated near Aalborg in Denmark, which contains dwellings for senior residents as well as families with children. Through increased insulation, heat recovery, passive solar heat and absence of thermal bridges it has become an energy efficient dwelling, which complies with the passive house standards.
