The Eco-lective is defined by the five buildings that have each been given an identity: the culture house, the washing house, the health house, the workshop house and the resource house. This is done to create a sense of community across and between the houses, and these identities have been shaped by the functions that are essential to a sustainable housing project.
The arrival to your home happens through a spacious atrium of 10x10m. This creates a sense of community and also means that the homes are no deeper than 6m, making them lit by daylight from both sides. The large atrium is covered by a glass roof, creating a unique indoor climate. In here it is possible to gorw plants and vegetables throughout the year, and every inhabitant is allocated an indoor terrace giving the possibility to sit in the sun during almost all months of the year.
