The Villa Nyberg designed as passive house situated by a lake in a fur forest in central Sweden – Borlänge. Designed by Sweden based architects Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture, this house extremely well-insulated buildings that are largely heated by the energy already present in the building – people and our household equipment generate a lot of energy. This villa will have an energy consumption for heating of only 25 kWh/m²year.
The living room and kitchen open up towards the views of the lake, the more private areas such as the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on the other side of the house with smaller windows overlooking the forest. The round shape of the villa eliminates cold bridges and reduces the enclosing wall area of the house. It also effects the way you live in the house, during the day one will move from room to room around the building experiencing different views and daylight conditions. The kitchen and the living room form one big open room. From there two corridors running along the atrium connects it with the bedrooms. – Kjellgren Kaminsky
