Comfort from every angle

The Multi Comfort concept is designed to deliver every kind of comfort, in any kind of building, anywhere in the world. And always in a sustainable and economical way.

Thermal Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings keep themselves at an optimal temperature using very little energy. They’re neither too hot nor too cold – so we can function comfortably, whatever we’re doing.

Visual Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings bring the outdoors in. They maximize daylight to create the right amount of light for specific tasks – whether it’s reading, performing surgery or working out at the gym.

Acoustic Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings have well-balanced sound environments. They actively protect us from unwanted exterior noise, and enhance those sounds that we do want to hear.

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.
