Garden city becomes a nursing home

Furuset Garden City is the second nursing home in Oslo to be designed as a garden city. Dronning Ingrids Hage is the first. Furuseth Hageby, like Dronning Ingrids Hage, is designed with people with cognitive impairment in mind, and will therefore have 112 places.

  • FutureBuilt project and BREEAM certified

Sustainable garden city

The nursing home will have a floor space of 13,400 m2, and will be designed as a garden city with smaller units with living groups and shared recreation rooms. Residents should have easy access to good outdoor areas that are safe to move within.

The project is a FutureBuilt project with very high environmental ambitions. This applies both to reductions of greenhouse gas emissions, energy efficient measures in the actual building shell, the use of renewable energy and appropriate material use. The construction site will be fossil fuel free, and the building will be BREEAM-certified.

This is a project with many good elements of innovation, environment, interaction and user orientation. The aim is that the building will be a good place to be for users and employees, and that leaves the smallest possible footprint.
