Where a small baroque house torn down in 1959 once stood, there is now a 6 storey building complex with 20 apartments in total in Bamberg city centre. Whilst renovating the building which is close to the centre with good transport connections, the designing architect was able to create a modern design complying to sound insulation class 4 despite a construction style from the 1950s and it being a protected building. Concurrently, it was all about tying in the modified facade in terms of the colour concept which was developed especially for the building, with the structure which was already there. Crucially, the modern French casement windows made from the GEALAN-System S 9000 helped the architect fulfil his aim. With their size and colour coordination, they fit harmoniously into the image of Markusstrasse as a whole.
In 2012, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology in Bremerhaven opened a new engineering building for testing rotor blades. The offices in the upper storeys are arranged in a wing-shaped layout and enjoy an impressive view of the North Sea.
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.
The seven urban villas of the second building phase continue the positive change to the housing development "Neue Burg" which started back in 2008 with the transformation of the existing buildings from the 1960s.
