Residential Architecture: Bruges i Case House by JJW: “..This extraordinary low-energy house was designed by the Danish architects JJW/Wissenberg in close collaboration with the owners of the house..The house is particularly interesting because unlike almost every other low-energy house, this isn’t compact. Normally low-energy houses are more compact than traditionally houses, because the more compact the building is, the easier and more cost-effective it is to reach the Low-energy house Standard..While designing the JJW/Wissenberg low-energy house the architects have used new technology to live up to the Low-energy house Standard, while keeping it spacious. The flat outer facade and high glass area/real estate also meant that the architects had to find alternative solutions and window concepts..Getting as much sunlight into the house as possible was a high priority and therefore the house is built in 3 levels with large super-efficient windows from Rationel Windows & Doors. At least 50 % of the energy supply comes from the windows which is the main reason why this project has reached the Low-energy house class 1..”  Roof terrace, balconies, cantilever, energy efficiency; interesting fenestration, abundant natural light..
