Energy-efficiency is our main emphasis and here our Swedish building methods and traditions play a large role. High levels of insulation and an airtight building envelope in conjuntion with ventilation heat-recovery systems and triple glazed low-emission-argon filled glass are important factors.
Passive upgrade option was made available in 2004 and since 2006 most houses are built to “Passive standard“. This is the strictest energy performance standard for housing in the world.
We have built our factory in Lysekil, a small town on the Swedish west-coast. Located close to the sources of dense quality wood and other components. Our modular wall-sections are manufactured here, in a dry and clean environment. Our system allows up to 200m² houses to be shipped on one single trailer. This is a very cost-and-energy efficient way of production and shipping.

-Healthy and sustainable. Simple natural materials and modern components taking advantage of the latest Swedish research. We avoid complex composite materials that are full of glues and other chemicals in order to create healthy and sustainable houses.
-Any layout possible. Each house is different, developed and designed in partnership with you. We help and advise with design and orientation to suit the local climate and solar conditions.

-Ventilated external walls keep the dampness away from the structure. Rendered fiber-silicate board is rendered with silicate colored-through plaster system. Alternatively timber cladding can be used.
