The idea is simple, we believe that climate positive architecture combines good design and good business

In 2021, the Hotel Green Solution House (Hotel GSH), on the Danish island of Bornholm will welcome a brand new wing, built, clad and insulated using wooden materials that will be both CO2 neutral and climate positive.

Currently under construction, the groundbreaking 24-key wing will feature a rooftop spa and conference room, and is being designed by the same team that originally built Hotel GSH in 2015 – Danish architecture firm 3XN and its in-house green thinktank, GXN.

Hotel GSH’s new wing is expected to provide a positive climate footprint when built – something that’s not been seen in a commercial building in Denmark before.

“The idea is simple, we believe that climate positive architecture combines good design and good business,” says Kasper Guldager Jensen, 3XN partner and founder of GXN.

“Today destination tourism has got multiple dimensions. Hotel GSH will provide a blueprint for a climate positive future, and that experience is a destination worth travelling for, which ultimately makes it a good business for our client.”

Besides being all wood, the new hotel wing will excel by upcycling waste products created from the offcut construction for the furniture and surfaces, while debris from local granite quarries in Bornholm will be used for decoration in conference rooms.

The stone will also help to regulate the temperature in the conference room, as granite naturally stores heat and cold.

Furthermore, the building will be naturally ventilated using skylight windows and open areas, which eliminates the need for mechanical solutions.

“I hope this new project can help to show others the potential of wood construction,” said Jensen, “If we in Denmark want to be able to achieve our climate goals, the construction industry needs to think and act differently, and thus there’s a great need for more projects like this.”
