New carbon-neutral wing at Green Solution House has opened
On the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm, Green Solution House has opened the doors to their new climate-positive wing. With its 24 rooms, this is the first climate positive commercial building in Denmark.
Besides the rooms, the new wing also includes a conference room and a rooftop spa – all built using wooden materials that are not only climate neutral but will actually provide a positive climate footprint, since wood naturally absorbs CO2.
The wing is developed in accordance with the principle of Cradle 2 Cradle®, which means that all materials used are either fully recyclable or biodegradable. Upcycled waste materials are used for furniture and decorations, while solar panels will provide the hotel with hot water starting spring 2022.
The new wing is designed by 3XN and their green think thank GXN and the uniqueness of the project is further emphasized by the fact that it has been made part of the curriculum for Danish engineering students at Denmark’s Technical University.
