Nature house and Eco-architecture
We form part of the greenhouse living initiative, where we research and develop the Naturhus concept, described by architect Bengt Warne in the 1970’s.
The vision is to make self sustainable houses that produce food, instead of waste. Houses that generate energy, instead of only consuming it and , ultimately, living spaces that induce reflection and learning thus influencing the behavior of inhabitants towards mindfulness and sustainability.
Our role is related to the energy modelling, energy systems and water quality around the house.
This house is our living lab. Here, we are developing technologies for storing waste/seasonal heat, efficient/low-cost reactors to produce biogas from human/kitchen waste.
We are also researching nutrient recovery from waste water (nitrogen and phosphorous) while assessing parameters of water quality through analytically chemistry tests.
”Living in a greenhouse gives architecture a fourth dimension, where time is represented by movements of naturally recycled endless flows of growth, sun, rain, wind and soil, in plants, energy, air, water and earth. I call this NATURE HOUSING.”
