As a pioneer target in the VELUX sustainability strategy 2030, the Living Places concept was ideated and developed by VELUX in partnership with EFFEKT and Artelia to rethink how we build today and challenge the building industry to create responsible and regenerative solutions that benefit both people and the planet.
Living Places Copenhagen is a partner project for the UIA World Congress of Architects in Copenhagen and consists of seven buildings – five open pavilions and two finished homes in full scale, showing our take on healthy and sustainable homes.
Each material, design and building technique has been carefully considered to reduce the environmental impact and improve human health. By analyzing all stages of the building’s life cycle and understanding the implication of each design choice, we have achieved 3 x lower carbon footprint emissions than an average Danish single family house and a first-class indoor climate.
Visit Living Places Copenhagen during 2023 to experience a new sustainable approach to building homes that benefits both people and the planet.
