We have supplied Sticks and Square to the housing association Ringgården at Lystrup near Aarhus. The sustainable houses, designed by schmidt hammer lassen architects, who also designed Sticks & Square, have won a Nordic prize as the best housing project in the Nordic countries. The prize is initiated by the "Nordiska kooperativa och allmännyttiga bostadsorganisationer" (NBO) and awarded "a new housing project uniting exciting architecture with environmentally and socially sustainable solutions at a reasonable price".
The Chairman of the NBO, Swedish Kurt Eliasson, was excited about the Danish housing project:
- A worthy winner. The housing association Ringgården has built timeless, cubic houses. Besides the harmonious forms, the houses are effectively insulated and combined with highly efficient ventilation and reservation of rain water in a near-by lake. A place to be inspired by.
