Abstract : In Greenland the determining factors in the solution of new housing construction of inhabited places are consideration of the terrain, with its preservation if possible; mandatory inclusion of a seaview as a component part of the architectural composition; maximum possible use of insolation, not only by means of the appropriate orientation of the buildings, but also by the selection of dark tones for painting them; and the presence of protected spaces for recreation and games in the open air.
