VELUX Group wins Bo Bedre’ Design Award 2023 in the Innovation category


We are happy and pleased to receive this price from Danish Design magazine Bo Bedre in the innovation category for Living Places Copenhagen. Together with our partners EFFEKTArtelia Denmark and Enemærke & Petersen a/s we have shown how to build homes with a very low carbon footprint and a top tier indoor climate.

The jury said:
“This project puts itself in the catapult seat to show how the future could look like. It`s a project that shows how to build with a low carbon footprint and still focusing even more on health. It`s a place that showcases a number of houses with smarthome technology, certified wood and insolation with Wood fiber […] The VELUX Group can be very prod of this final result. It is overall praiseworthy to see them invest so heavily in research on health, indoor climate, daylight and sustainability, and it illustrates the willingness to change and improve the world that we live in."

About Living Places Copenhagen

In April 2023 the VELUX Group, EFFEKT, Artelia, and Enemærke & Petersen opened the doors to Living Places Copenhagen in the Railway District in Copenhagen. It is the first prototype of the overall Living Places concept, and the vision is to lead the way in the building industry and show how rethinking buildings can help solve some of the global climate and health challenges. The groundbreaking project demonstrates that it is possible to build homes with a CO2 footprint that is 2/3 lower per m2/year than the Danish standard while ensuring a first-class indoor climate.
