Vigs Angar, an old persons’ home in southern Sweden, uses the latest environmental principles of design and construction based on anthroposophic techniques. The project consists of 32 apartments: two group homes and twelve individual apartments. Each group home has a common room, large kitchen and living room, enhancing social integration and allowing for total care of the residents with monitored air and climate control. Simple and restrained designs give adequate space and emphasis to belongings and furniture of the residents. Natural construction materials were used with a variety of energy saving options incorporated. Energy consumption is kept to a minimum and waste products recycled wherever possible.
