WorldFlexHome - Danish sustainable housing in Shanghai


Danish worldFLEXhome develops, manufactures and sells "green" homes  at 0-energy. The architect-designed homes have a modern design and are based on modular constructions. The first prototype will be used for a sustainable housing in the Chinese city Wuxi (East of Shanghai), where the Danish test house will be placed in a large development-project with a total of 45,000 m2.
The homes will be the first prefabricated housing system, that meets the class 1- demands in the international environment-building-standard, Active House and fulfils the Danish 2020-requirements which implies co-opting energy consumption through integrated solar cells.
The project started 2 years ago at the Danish Institute of Technology Projektet Institut, lead by center Director Anders Thomsen, and was developed in collaboration with more than 20 Danish partners – like Velux, Isover, Junckers, Cembrit, HTH og Jeldwen.
”We have solved the modular capability by using a module of steel as basic structural element (equivalent to a 20 or 40 feet container), because of the stability and flexibility in this wellknown construction. The building system can be used for construction of detached and semidetached dwelling, townhouses, rowhouses and not least storey housing”, says architect and partner Mads Møller from Arcgency.
”The chinese municipality in Wuxi has provided 2 exhibition sites for our disposal for five years, that will be our commercial take-off both in Wuxi, and also other places in China”, tells Anders Bach-Sørensen, who is shareholder, together with Jan Sørensen, in worldFLEXhome.
