The VELUX Group has launched the project Model Home 2020. It is our vision for climate-neutral buildings with a high living factor.
This is part of a VELUX strategy to take active part in developing sustainable buildings – the buildings of the future.
The vision and principles behind Model Home 2020 need to be developed and tested. They will all reflect and respond to three main principles – efficient energy design, high living factor and minimum climate impact – as well as the different climatic, cultural and architectural conditions of the countries in which they are built.
The six experiments will be placed at six different locations in five different countries.
All six experiments within the Model Home 2020 concept will be built throughout 2008-2010, starting with the two houses in Denmark. By 2009, the houses will have been built in Denmark – Home for Life in Aarhus and Green Lighthouse in Copenhagen – and Austria, with UK, Germany and France following in 2010.
The two experiments in Denmark will be built as a partnership between the VELUX Group and VELFAC.
