Ms. Hansen has been responsible for interdisciplinary building and research projects based on defining, testing and communicating Active House, a vision of buildings that ‘give more than they take’. The basis of the project involves eight national and international buildings, together with the companies VELUX, VELFAC and Sonnenkraft. The aim is to find methods and examples of how to improve quality of life in future energy-producing buildings. Ellen was project manager on the first house and kindergarden built according to the Active House principals, ‘Home for Life’ and ‘Solhuset’.
