Sweden’s first round Passive House boasts an innovative solar-powered balcony

No surface is off limits to solar. Villa Circuitus – Sweden’s very first round Passive House – generates its own energy with a solar-powered balcony. Working with Nina Sandahl at SAJT Arkitekstudio, Simone Kreutzer and Tommy Wesslund designed the home to be self-sufficient almost all year, despite the site’s northerly location and grey winters. Combining smart passive design, the solar balcony, which is wrapped around the second story, and other technology, the designers produced a swoon-worthy home with stable temperatures year-round.
