Passive house ground flats, Glumslöv, Sweden

An area with passive houses in Glumslöv, just outside of Landskrona in the southern part of Sweden, consisting of 35 ground flats. The houses are extremely well insulated with 550 mm in the roof and four layers with a total of 470 mm in the walls. The houses are absolutely tight and built with great care. There are no heating systems in the houses, which means they are ”self heating”, using heat from the residents and the heat that is produced by electrical appliances. A recycling system for outward and inward air recycles about 85% of the energy.

Products used:

PAROC BLT Loose wool 
PAROC UNS 37z Wall slabs

The images above will break many myths about passive houses; for example, all passive houses have small windows and look like boxes. There is no need to give up on the wish to have a dream house, even if its energy need and consumption are at a passive house level. Also, the architecture of the house proves that passive houses cannot be recognized from outside.
