Over the years, we have helped innumerable contractors, advisers and architects to create the best possible indoor climate in new builds and renovation projects. The Danish Cancer Society’s headquarters in the Østerbro district of Copenhagen is a major renovation project. LivingBetter’s role is to ensure that the new workplace is a draught-free environment with a lower heating consumption than before. Meanwhile, the new windows shall restore the original look of the building, as the architect intended. As always, we are engaged as project consultants. We tailor a solution and provide a window design that meets the client’s precise needs and wishes. We are not obliged to use standard windows.

The fact is that standard design houses in particular face more indoor climate-related problems than ever before. Indoor climate has been a critical issue for decades. In the 1960s, standard design houses were extremely poorly insulated. Homeowners complained of draughts and steep energy bills. In recent years, things have changed as building regulations now address the need to insulate. However, well-insulated houses tend to develop a poor indoor climate.
Providers of standard design houses, like Jakobsen Huse, are now working with LivingBetter to offer new homeowners sustainable standard design houses that have both a healthy indoor climate and unprecedented low levels of consumption. Among Jakobsen Huse’s satisfied customers is Johannes Damsgaard-Bruhn. In his home, he can maintain a comfortable room temperature all year round – when outside temperatures plummet to 20 below zero in the winter and when he works in his home office in the attic on a scorching summer day.
