kjellgren kaminsky architecture: villa nyberg

‘villa nyberg’ by kjellgren kaminsky architecture

kjellgren kaminsky architecture has produced swedens first series of passive houses sold as type houses in collaboration with emrahus. their goal was to make this environmentally friendly building technique available for all. ‘villa nyberg’ is the first one to get built. the villa has been customized for the nyberg family and is situated in borlänge, central sweden.

passive houses are 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. their energy simulations show that this villa will have an energy consumption for heating of only 25 kwh/m²year.

to reduce heatloss airtightness is an important feature of a passivehouse. when they tested the airtightness of ‘villa nyberg’ in a blow door test they got a pleasent suprise – a new swedish record. the result was 0,038 l/sm² at 50 pa. the swedish passive house standard is 0,3 and the previous record was 0,07.

the villa is situated by a lake in a fur forest in central sweden. 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 coldbridges 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 autumn is closing in, but its still warm in the sun. its sunday morning and i’m reading the newspaper in the kitchen. from here i can see almost the whole house. the kitchen and the living room form one big open room. from there two corridors running along the atrium connects it with the bedrooms. if i look into the atrium i can see the doors to the bedrooms on the other side, there our kids are still fast asleep, they stayed up a bit too long yesterday watching movies.

  • Circle is the most efficient use of building materials, but the plumbing is scattered all over the place, which is inefficient.
    Real estate agents hate circular homes because they’re so hard to sell.

  • Interesting concept, and I like how you’re experimenting with the psychology of homelife. But, it reminds me of an alzheimer care facility where the patients are locked in and can only go around and around to fool them into thinking they have freedom.

  • Design concept? 12 hours clock translated to a 24 dayschedule! sorry, but aren’t there missing 12 hours?

    Maybe you need three dining rooms and kitchens in this concept. would be useless but a stringent idea..
