MULTICOMFORT design principles can be applied to any type of building (residential or non-residential, new build or renovation project) in any country or climate around the world.

Built in the small town of Lillehammer in the middle of Norway for the Cross Country ski star Heidi Weng. This house is the first house in the world built with MyComfort™-solutions. Main focus for this project has been to build a home with optimal comfort solutions meeting the professional athlete's special needs. With a gas tight room with it's own ventilation system for ski prepping and 40 sqm in the 2nd floor which can be used for training or bedrooms if her personal needs changes. The challenging plot with 10 meter height difference is located in the south part of the town, right next to a ski trail. The architectural design of the house with three storeys gives a remarkable view over the lake "Mjøsa" nearby with easy access to the house from the street and a direct exit to the ski trail from the 3rd floor.
