world FLEX home

The WFH concept is a patented modular buildingsystem, based on a designprinciple, using 40 feet high standard modules as structural system. The structure can be adapted to local challenges such as climatic or earthquake issues. The first prefabricated housing system, that meets the demands in the international environment-building-standard, Active House. The structure can be configured to meet many different purposes, multi storey, townhouses, clusterhouses or individual villas. Top class indoor climate, low energyconsumption and environmentally sound materials. Very short construction-period. Demountable for recycling or relocation. Online costumization-tools give clients the possibility to decide their own version of the house concerning layout, size, facade, interior etc. The configuration happens within a predefined framework that will ensure high architectural value and quality of materials. Cost competitive in comparison with other Active Houses. Building-components are prefabricated and on site construction can be limited. The design allows for high-quality industrial production in large numbers. and distribution using standard container transport.

From the FLEXspace there is access to all spaces. This eliminates square meters used for logistics. It is possible to insert larger openings from the FLEXspace into the spaces, creating flexible solutions within the same system.

The work area of the kitchen. From the FLEXspace there is access to all spaces. This eliminates square meters used for logistics. It is possible to make larger openings from the FLEXspace into the rooms, again creating flexible solutions within the same system. Sustainable global housing The WFH concept is a modular concept, based on a designprinciple, using 40 feet high cube standard modules as structural system. The structure can be adapted to local challenges such as climatic or earthquake issues. Online costumization-tools give clients the possibility to decide their own version of the house concerning layout, size, facade, interior etc. The configuration happens within a predefined framework that will ensure high architectural value and quality of materials. Building-components are prefabricated and on site construction can be limited. The design allow Design The design is based on Nordic values. Not only according to architecture, but also design objects. These values are defined as: - Materials that age gracefully. - Minimalistic look. - Playfulness. - Build for people, human values. - Good daylight conditions. - Reliable (long term) solutions. - Healthy materials. Bedrooms The size of the bedrooms is defined by the half of a modul (15m2). There are four bedrooms, and they can be used for multiple purposes. As parents bedroom, kids bedroom, workspace etc. Three of the rooms have windows on two facades, creating a mixed light. It is possible to remove the wall, or part of it, facing the FLEX space. This adds flexibility to the layout and shows the structural systems ability to adapt do different needs. Landing The landing creates access to the second floor, but can also be used as a space for play, relaxation or work. It gives the inhabitant the possibility to draw back, but still enjoy the company of people in the house. You are in the FLEX space, but because you are on the first floor you are drawn back from the action. It is an ideal place for a quiet retreat and still being able to observe what is going on in the house. FLEX space The FLEX space is the heart of the house. It contains the living room, kitchen and can be used for multiple purposes. Parts of the room are double height, creating perfect lighting conditions. The rest of the space is one story height, defined by the landing that creates access to the spaces on the second floor. In each end of the FLEXspace there is access to the surroundings and daylight. The boundary between inside and outside disappears, when the doors open. This is a fundamental part of the design; to be able to open let nature in. It is a consequence of having varying requirements for inside temperature and definitions of what domestic functions takes place inside and outside.

Geometry The geometry of the FLEXspace is defined by the two rows of modules, and can easily be modified to specific wishes regarding size. The FLEXspace has a number of possible solutions for subdivisions. Both on one plan or two plans. It can also be one big space, creating a lot of light and openness. The kitchen elements are built into the wall (into the technical modul). It creates more floorspace and also makes connection to water and plumbing easy. The kitchen can also be extended with at freestanding element, defining the work area of the kitchen. From the FLEXspace there is access to all spaces. This eliminates square meters used for logistics. It is possible to make larger openings from the FLEXspace into the rooms, again creating flexible solutions within the same system.

FACTS: - 180 square meters. - Energy class, which is 50% lower than the standard requirements for new housing constructions in Denmark. - Photovoltaic cells are integrated area is flexible, but to fulfill the standards above min. 20 m2 solar cells for power production are needed. With an area of 30 m2 or above a normal household using energy efficient appliances will be self-sufficient with power on an annual basis. - Green roof solutions or optimized for rainwater harvesting for use for toilet flushing, washing and cleaning. - Custom faade solutions.

Numbers and Specifications

Numbers and Specifications The specifications of the worldFLEXhome houses have been divided in 4 different categories compared to the individual The specifications of the worldFLEXhome houses have been divided in to 4 different categories compared to the individual market and end-user, market end-user, were no. 1 is the highest class regarding were no.and 1 is the highest class regarding Energy, Environment and Indoor Climate: Energy, Environment and Indoor Climate:

Annual energy performance

The annual energy performance shall be based on primary energy calculations and it includes calculation of the energy demand of the building, the energy demand of appliances and a calculation of the renewable energy being used. An WFH House is classified according to the annual primary energy use, where: 1: 0 kWh/m2 for the building and appliances 2: 0 kWh/m2 for the building 3: 15 kWh/m2 for the building 4: 30 kWh/m2 for the building (modernization)

Annual energy demand for the building

The annual energy demand includes energy demand for space heating, water heating, ventilation, air conditioning including cooling, technical installations and electricity for lighting. 1: 30 kWh/m2 2: 50 kWh/m2 3: 80 kWh/m2 4: 120 kWh/m2 (modernization only)

Origin of energy supply

1: 100% of the energy is produced on the plot 2: more than 50% of the energy is produced on the plot 3: more than 25% of the energy is produced on the plot 4: less than 25% of the energy is produced on the plot

Daylight factor

For the main rooms that used during the day (living and activity zones such as a living room, work space, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, or childs play room) the minimum daylight factor is: 1: DF > 5% on average 2: DF > 3% on average 3: DF > 2% on average 4: DF > 1% on average Reference: CIBSE 2002 Code of Lighting.
