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. In both cases KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten, Brunswick were the planners. The new tenements in Wolfsburg Detmerode with their height, cubature and colourfulness fit harmoniously into the context of town planning. Terraces, balconies and floor-length GEALAN plastic windows with coloured acrylcolor surfaces make connecting with the outside space instantly possible and consistently implement the idea of "living close to nature". Alongside the affordable rent, these 92 apartments distinguish themselves through their energy saving construction complying to KfW 55 standard as well as the use of geothermal energy and photovoltaics.
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.
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.
The buildings are an ensemble of apartment buildings from the years 1910 - 1911 in Hamburg, Germany. The five-storey masonry buildings were built in the typical style of the Gründerzeit houses.
