The Osram Building was originally built in 1953 as an office and warehouse for A/S Dansk Osram, i.e. a lightbulb manufacturer. The building was the first prefabricated building in Copenhagen, and it was built in shock concrete or shavings, as it is also called. The construction method was developed in Holland, and in involves includes powerfully shaking the concrete. The elements hereby get a very close and uniform structure.

Climate change is already underway, and some dangerous consequences include warmer average temperatures and severe and frequent heat waves.
The recent heat waves, which set new temperature records in Europe, has shown that Western, Central and Nordic cities are more vulnerable to heat stress than those already facing heat regularly in the Southern Europe.

Researchers in Europe are developing a new kind of prefabricated energy efficient building façades, equipped with special insulation and solar panels.
These solutions are built far from the construction site, in an industrial environment, and can therefore be installed quickly and painlessly for homeowners or tenants

This is the first block of housing certified in Spain built in 2017 under the Passivhaus standard, and therefore has a demand for heating below 15kWh / m2a, and a heating load of 10W / m2.
This implies that a floor of 75m2 will have a heating load of only 750W, so with a hair dryer there would be enough to heat two houses.
To achieve this the following principles have been applied:
