Project: Green Solution House, DenmarkArchitects: 3XN Team, Denmark

Green Solution House is more than a building. It is a neighborhood, a community and an island coming together to explore and demonstrate circular sustainability. It consists of a conference centre and hotel on the island of Bornholm built using innovative green solutions. The project is a prime example of regenerative architecture with an aspiration to eliminate the concept of waste.

Context

The vision for Green Solution House is to be a demonstratorium for circular sustainability with three goals: 1) To demonstrate green solutions; 2) To promote continuous improvement; and 3) To enable knowledge sharing. The design of the building itself is based on several parameters to showcase a holistic approach to sustainability. The building has been certifi ed according to DGNB standards, documented as an Active House and accepted in the Cradle to Cradle registry.

The renovated hotel rooms and new conference building reach out into the surrounding nature park, where seasonal lakes ensure that all water is handled on site while creating habitats for local biotopes and redlisted species. Your comfort is at the centre of all experiences at Green Solution House; and this comes from being in the ever presence of the surrounding nature, the clean air from the ocean, and the abundance of daylight everywhere.
