Six floors, over 10,000 square metres of space, 187 flats, 690 square metres of commercial space – the Magnolia residential quarter in the north of Leipzig is outstanding.

There’s also a green courtyard with a playground and an underground car park in the new building complex. 51 beautifully furnished two- to four-room flats are equipped with balconies, loggias and terraces, while 136 two-room apartments have been optimised for age-appropriate living. Energy efficiency is a priority at Magnolia: the neighbourhood meets the requirements of the KfW Efficiency House 55 standard.

The GEALAN S 9000 system windows play a key role in achieving excellent thermal insulation values. Magnolia is situated in the district of Eutritzsch which is currently blossoming into an interestingresidential and commercial location. The location between the city centre, the Leipziger Messe exhibition grounds and the motorway is very desirable.

A head building marked by ingenuity

The new head building at the GEALAN production site in Tanna, Thuringia, combines large glass surfaces together with smart ventilation.


Park living

In the Hamburg-Hohenfelde park quarter, 32 attractive cooperative flats have been built as three buildings around a park in the last two years in two construction phases. In the complex, 26 apartments have been made accessible according to DIN 18040 part 2, the other 6 apartments are accessible according to DIN 18040 part 2 and are also designed for unrestricted wheelchair use. The housing area is built around a public park and the Alster tributary is just a few minutes away. As a conventional masonry construction, the building in the busy Muehlendamm area has been given a facade made from closed facing and fully glazed loggia which made it possible to have lounges and bedrooms on the louder side of the building.


A green in the countryside

The little village of Cromvoirt is a major highlight on any golfer’s map and is located in the Dutch province of North Brabant. Golfers travel from all around to Bernardus Golf: a challenging 18-hole championship golf course that unites golf architecture together with nature.


A show-stopper at central station

It’s not quite that easy to say what the colour of the new Simmel Center in the heart of Dresden is: the facade is composed of multicoloured matt and glossy aluminium panels coated in all colours of the spectrum, which shimmer all the shades of the rainbow depending on how the light falls: a lustrous sight for anyone passing by on the train or in a car.
