From the architect. Passive houses as type houses

Kjellgren Kaminsky has produced Swedens first series of passive houses sold as type houses in collaboration with Emrahus, our goal is to make this environmentally friendly building technique available for all. Villa Nyberg is the first one to get built. The villa has been customized for the Nyberg family and is situated in Borlänge, central Sweden.

The passive house Concept

Passive houses are extremely well-insulated buildings that are largely heated by the energy already present in the building - people and our household equipment generate a lot of energy. Our energy simulations show that this villa will have an energy consumption for heating of only 25 kWh/m²year.

Swedish record in IN Airtightness

To reduce heatloss airtightness is n important feature of a passivehouse. When we tested the airtightness of Villa Nyberg in a blowdoortest we got apleasent suprise, a new Swedish record! The result was 0,038 l/sm² at 50 Pa. The Swedish passive house standard is 0,3 and the previous record was 0,07.

Design Principles

The villa is situated by a lake in a fur forest in central Sweden. The living room and kitchen open up towards the views of the lake, the more private areas such as the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on the other side of the house with smaller windows overlooking the forest. The round shape of the villa eliminates coldbridges and reduces the enclosing wallarea of the house. It also effects the way you live in the house, during the day one will move from room to room around the building experiencing different views and daylight conditions.

Living in Villa Nyberg

The autumn is closing in, but its still warm in the sun. Its Sunday morning and I’m reading the newspaper in the kitchen. From here I can see almost the whole house. The kitchen and the living room form one big open room. From there two corridors running along the atrium connects it with the bedrooms. If I look into the atrium I can see the doors to the bedrooms on the other side, there our kids are still fast asleep, they stayed up a bit too long yesterday watching movies.

You have got to be kidding. No relationship to the site whatsoever!

jim_billy · July 01, 2010

that's funny... I count 7 flat walls to hang things on

Jeremiah · July 01, 2010 04:34 AM

Sixteen if you count both sides and the entry way walls... but I'll admit, they still have a lot of tricky little corners where my poor square furniture would feel awkward and insecure.

kensi · July 01, 2010

round houses ... do these people not like to hang things on the walls? not a single flat wall in plan. i is confoozd

Jeremiah · June 30, 2010

I tend to think this isn't so much "ordinary" as it is simple. And often simple is good, as it is here. I can't help but admire the circular plan, something that is often tried, but rarely pulled off well. Good work.

designrulz · June 30, 2010

Being simple may sometimes look ordinary. I find good, basic architectural principles in this building.

duran duran · June 30, 2010

looks ordinary.
