Karin Nyquist, Architect SAR/MSA, BREEAM International Assessor
In 1997 I started my own architect office, Karin Nyquist Arkitektkontor, located in Gothenburg, on the west coast of Sweden. I am working closely with my father Anders Nyquist in many projects.
I work with small and large scale ecocycle adapted projects all over the world. I teach EcoCycleDesign at universities and hold lectures for municipalities, companies and organisations. I perform environment assessments on buildings in Europe, such as BREEAM.
I believe that Ecology and Economy are very close connected. To build in harmony with the environment is also to build in harmony with your economy.
I live and work in a house we have built ourselves mainly from re-used building material. The new materials we have used are locally produced, healthy, durable and possible to re-use in the future. We use renewable energy - sun, wind, wood and wood pellets - to heat our house and tap water. LED-lighting devices minimise the need of electricity for lighting.
