C. F. Møller Architects designed the Saint-Gobain Playhouse in Denmark.
Description from the architects:
The sustainable playhouse designed for the manufacturer Saint-Gobain Isover, is conceived as a playhouse for children and adults – or as an unusual guest annex. The aim is to highlight the construction of energy-saving homes, and although small, the house displays details and materials which will be a part of tomorrow’s solutions.
Playhouse is 4,5 meters long and 3 meters tall, and has a distinct leaning profile, with large “intelligent” glazing as windows, skylight and solar panel, as well as for interior lighting using a new technology. The walls contain a special, highly insulating glass wool, and the triple-layer energy glazing is equivalent to modern passive-house standards.
The house is so well insulated that a few candles suffice for heating, even in winter. The skewed form not only looks interesting, it also helps the building’s south façade shade itself from the summer sun.
The playhouse was exhibited at Højbro Square in Copenhagen during the climate summit from the 7th to the 18th December.
