The vision for developing Ellebo Plus is based on a search for the good and healthy life, defined through a holistic approach to sustainability. Our working method is always to integrate sustainable aspects – environmental, social, and economical sustainability – from the first sketch to ensure that the project is sustainable throughout and not just an added layer at the end. The strategy for renovation in Ellebo Plus takes hold of the common problems in this kind of housing complex which are found throughout the country. The principals for a holistic sustainable renovation can therefore easily be reused for renovations in other similar housing estates.
A clear intention with the project is to utilize the opportunities for community building that the more than 200 housing units offer, but do not properly realize presently. In Ellebo Plus the community itself will become a driving force throughout the estate. Creating a stronger neighbourhood with a greater feeling of belonging amongst the inhabitants is a goal that is reached through means such as establishing parts of the communal yard as allotment gardens.
