What if we could build homes that are healthy for both people and the planet?
We spend 90% of our time indoors, so the way we build and live directly affects our physical and mental health.
Living Places focuses not only on how we create a better living environment for our planet, but also on creating a path towards a future-oriented society that enhances living conditions for people as well.
Each prototype showcases how we can build homes that don’t just make us less sick, but actually contribute to improving our health.
Homes that reduce environmental impact
We took a look at the average Danish home. We examined materials, construction, utilities, and architecture. Then we asked ourselves how rethinking everything can take us closer to building homes with significantly less impact on the planet.
The result is Living Places: a collection of truly sustainable homes with a carbon footprint 70% lower than the average Danish home.
We already have all the knowledge and solutions we need to create people-positive, low-emission housing for the many. In fact, we’re ready to build this way right now. It’s just about getting started.
Homes that enhance our health and wellbeing
Since industrialisation, humans have become increasingly separated from nature. We spend 65% of our time at home, and our homes are closely related to our health.
Our Living Places prototypes are filled with natural ventilation, daylight, and fresh air, which has been proven to improve health. We bring the outdoors in, allowing inhabitants to follow the light throughout the day, as well as the seasonal changes in nature throughout the year.
Living Places serves as proof that we can build sustainably within the planetary boundaries, and with an indoor climate that has a positive impact on our health.
