The Eco-lective is defined by four housing clusters that have been given each their identity: the Resource cluster, the Water cluster, the Energy cluster and the Bio cluster. Each cluster has its own specific sustainable functions and activities that are shared between all the clusters. This has been done to strengthen interactions and a sense of community throughout the development.
A unique element in the clusters is the covered conservatory area which comprises the common area between the houses and creates a unique indoor climate in this buffer zone. The added climate screen creates a milder climate during several more months than otherwise possible in an outdoor zone, making it possible to cultivate vegetables and herbs or hold birthday parties ‘outdoors’ almost all year round.
