The nursing home centre consists of 201 homes divided into 11 sections. It was rebuilt into a low energy consumption class 1 according to the Danish standard.
This meant an optimization of the passive qualities of the building, superior isolating of the building’s exterior walls and general isolation of the building along with controlled recycling of heat from ventilation.
These are some of the noteworthy extra sustainable initiatives: Green roofs, fascines as well as accumulation of rainwater. Furthermore, it was suggested to establish 900 m2 of solar cells. Also a universal upgrade of the homes, equal to contemporary and future conditions, was part of the overall project.
In the future, Faelledgaarden will mirror that the domicile is home to a variety of people with different backgrounds, ethnicities, qualifications, religion, story of life and interests.
Designing phase from January 2011 to June 2011 including the building permit project and main project.
Project follow-up until August 2011.
The project was completed in collaboration with Esbensen A/S.
Building owner is Copenhagen municipality.
