This booklet presents the multidisciplinary development of a
sustainable housing complex, situated on the harbourfront of
Midsund, on the west coast of Norway.
The project originated in collaboration with a local Norwegian
construction firm, Røberg Bygg A/S, seeking to build
on a newly planned building site. The project has aimed to
conceive an architectural, sustainable and feasible project,
focused on enhanced life quality, through the utilization of
natural resources on the site. These resources have been a
design catalyst for forming a harmonious project, with relation
to the surrounding context.
Furthermore, analysis of energy consumption and indoor environmental
qualities has been conducted, through several
design iterations and verification of the final design. These
analyses are made in BE18 and Bsim.
