Abstract [en]

Energy efficient houses benefit communities not only to provide renewable energy shares and surplus electricity to support local economic development. Also, resident in energy efficient houses have less energy usage. However, one of the obstacles of energy efficient technology installment is high investment cost, which are coped with the usage of modular housing by some practices. In Sweden, when it is combined with high housing construction expenses, energy efficient houses cannot be afforded by people having low income. This study develops a scenario to find solutions for affordable housing problem. The aim of this study is to investigate if there are ways of achieving socio-economic mix by the production of energy efficient affordable housing using urban gardening as a strategy for resource efficiency in Jakobsgårdarna. To do this, energy efficient affordable housing with modular units are designed, while analyzing socio-economic structure of neighborhood is analyzed, strategies for local economic are developed and energy efficient affordable housing is designed. This study uses a design-based research method consisting of learning from background cases and implementation of a single case study. Background cases were linked to each other by aspects and features by the literature review and then were used to develop a hypothesis. The lessons learned from literature review examples are used to define sustainable neighborhood. A collaborative ownership; designing common kitchens; producing electricity by solar panels and producing biogas; practicing urban agriculture; waste and storm management and development of land allocation strategies to cross subsidize energy efficient affordable housing production; were defined as sustainability tools for efficient usage of sources. The outcome of this research brings an urban design proposal for Jacobsgårdarna neighborhood development.
