The Hamburg-Hummelsbüttel retirement home is a new build in a conventional design with 55 residential units for sheltered living.

A lavish glass front shaded by large trees with a width of approx. 18 m and stretching over four storeys with an inwardly curving segment in the middle was constructed for the entrance area. This façade was constructed using vinyl segments rather than aluminium to take advantage of the excellent heat insulation values and low cost of PVC.

From Bauhaus to solar house

This residence in Oberkotzau is the first building in High Franconia to be built according to the solar house standard. The building architecture follows the principle "form follows energy" and is in perfect harmony with the solar energy concept. A 70° slanted roof with 70 m2 of solar panels faces south to capture the greatest amount of low winter sun and convert it into heat.
