Norrsken House

Norrsken Foundation is a foundation that aims to help entrepreneurs solve the world's major challenges such as poverty, famine, mental health, pollution and climate change. To accelerate the growth of small and growing businesses in East Africa, Norrsken plans to establish Kigali House as a center for entrepreneurship in Rwanda's capital. It will help spur economic development and entrepreneurship in East Africa by facilitating access to international capital.
Norrsken Kigali House includes spaces for a range of sizes and workspaces, from large collaborative spaces to quiet individual workspaces, as well as landscaped and semi-public outdoor areas. Transsolar supported the building's climate responsive design by supporting the MASS team in reviewing their analysis and providing strategic direction for daylight, natural ventilation, comfort and energy use.
