In the area, homes are built to be integrated into the wild nature on the slopes above the cultivated valley. This forest is located on a southwest slope, with the magnificent sea below, which allows sea views from all residential areas with the fields as foreground. The sunsets over the sea just outside cannot be more beautiful. The many hours of sunshine and proximity to the sea provide a microclimate, extra favorable for cultivation. The intention of the area is to build a garden café in the middle of the valley. The old factory becomes a place for crafts, inspirational design and interior design. Alternatively, condominiums will be built with the same theme and thoughts as the rest of the concept. A larger boat harbour allows residents to have a boat or for restaurant visitors to add one. The plan is also to establish “landscape hotel rooms” on the rocky hills above the valley and colonies in the valley.
Can you save energy while living in a more contrasting and sensible home and be more aware of your needs? What do you really need? The “new house” is based on the need to be able to spend more time in your home, the need to be private and at the same time the houses have developed outdoor spaces, especially in connection with kitchen and bath areas. The accommodation area is reduced and the interior and exterior rooms are given equal importance. The “new home” has no definitions as “living room”, “kitchen”, “bedroom”… The different features of the home have different temperate zones, depending on the activity of the room. It is another way to save energy while living in more contrast and more consciously. To simply, live closer. Necessary needs, sensibility, energy consumption and nature. The homes also have developed products from local materials and designs, such as wool interiors, which also act as sound absorbers. The homes can also have widescreen windows, to enhance the u-value and diffuse light as well as built-in light chute that also function as sound absorbers.
The forest consists mainly of pine, rowan and oxel. On the ground in the forest you will find blueberries, lingon, stone cloves and canterelles. In Spring, the forest is filled with hepatica and in summer you can find orchids. There are also rams and wild tulips in the park below the Lummelund caves. On the beach there are dew berries, wild boar and many beautiful flowers.
