Friluftsliv is the great Scandinavian philosophy of embracing the outdoor life in everything we do. We’re not only inspired by this ideal for the NØrdic, we are driven by every part of it. Life here will resonate with physical health through a love for the outdoor parks, amenities and walkable shopping and dining.
When building communities, it is important to consider the long term impact of construction. Our construction guidelines are a starting point for sustainability and we constantly strive to exceed them. Below are just a few of the steps we take to ensure we create buildings that are lasting, energy-efficient and enhance the residents’ quality of life.
