Living comfort and energy efficiency in serviced house

                                                                                                        

Project: Energy efficient living for special groups, 2010-2014

Customer: Lahden vanhusten asuntosäätiö (housing foundation for the elderly in Lahti)

Partners: Arkkitehtityö Oy, Rakennuttajapalvelu Henttonen Oy, Lahden kaupunki (City of Lahti), Rakli

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Challenges:

  1. Life long living: How the elderly can live in the same address in spite of changes in their condition?
  2. Special groups: How one serviced house can serve both the elderly and mentally handicapped?
  3. Energy efficiency: How the house is made energy efficient without compromising living comfort?

Solutions:

Services move instead of people. User-oriented space arrangements are made with 3D virtual modelling.
Same house includes four types of living: rental houses, serviced living, elderly living and serviced living for mentally handicapped.
Utilization of VTT's long experience on energy efficient building and indoor air quality.

Key benefits: The foundation can offer people a house which meet their demands now and in the future. The building also meets future's environmental requirements.
