Lilletvedt is one of the earliest low-energy housing projects in Norway and it has received a lot of positive attention due to their design and layout, as well as their sustainability. The use of energy in the project is below 100 kWh/sqm – which represents half the level of common housing in Norway. The buildings are organized in such a way that it forms a shielded courtyard with attractive outdoor areas.
Ramboll won the contract project-design competition in 2004. Total gross area 3,420 sqm.
Environmental issues in the project:
- Green spaces - park and sheltered green areas
- Indoor environment - clean construction methods, balanced ventilation
- Reduction of energy consumption: extra insulation, low levels of air infiltration, highly efficient windows and installation of ventilation with efficient heat recovery.
