dcsimg Residential - Ramboll Group


There is no place like home. Most of us want a home that is safe, healthy, and well functioning – a perfect place to rest and enjoy life. At Ramboll we pride ourselves on using our expertise to make houses that people would call “home.” 

Statistics show that around 40% of the total amount of energy that we use is consumed in houses. Therefore it is crucial that we rethink energy consumption patterns and plan for a minimal energy usage from the very beginning. One way of doing this is by designing homes in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained without active heating and cooling systems. The house heats and cools itself – this is termed a passive house.

Equipped with a range of renewable energy technologies and built to low energy standards, the houses feature ample glazing and some double-height spaces as part of a high-specification architectural brief.
