Design

The design is based on Nordic values. Not only according to architecture, but also design objects. These values are defined as:
Flexibility.
Build for people, human values. – Good daylight conditions, different types of light.

Reliable (long term) solutions. – Healthy materials, recyclable materials, design for disassembly strategies.
Materials that age gracefully.
Access to nature, greenery.
Minimalistic look.
Playfulness.
Sustainable global housing

The WFH concept is a modular concept, based on a design principle, 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 customization-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.
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 FLEX space 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 FLEX space is defined by the two rows of modules, and can easily be modified to specific wishes regarding size.
The FLEX space 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 module).
It creates more floor space 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 FLEX space there is access to all spaces. This eliminates square meters used for logistics. It is possible to make larger openings from the FLEX space into the rooms, again creating flexible solutions within the same system.

Bedrooms

The size of the bedrooms is defined by the half of a module (15m2). There are four bedrooms, and they can be used for multiple purposes: A parent’s bedroom, kid’s 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.
