Our design for the building community VielArten on the former Queck site in Tübingen is one of four selected projects that have been awarded the contract!
In order to keep greenhouse gas emissions as low as possible, the new building will be optimized in terms of ecological sustainability in all phases of construction and life in it, right through to dismantling. When choosing the materials, mainly renewable raw materials are used. Wood is the focus here, as it stores CO2 in the long term through its construction. In order not to raise the gray energy of the building with other materials that are more CO2-intensive in their production, particular attention is paid to their recyclability and regionality. With all materials, it is about resource-saving handling and the procurement and processing of raw materials that is as regional as possible. It is mainly about adapting as flexibly as possible to external environmental influences that will change more and more in the future. In order to be prepared for the increasingly hot summer days, the facades have external shading systems. On the north sides, large openings ensure that daylight is used for as long as possible. For a highly efficient exchange of air, the floor plans of each apartment allow natural ventilation on both sides. An active clay ceiling, which can be heated in winter, regulates the humidity.
Our house should offer meeting, interaction and learning space for house and neighborhood residents and thus create real neighborhood added value!
Completion is scheduled for early 2024. We look forward to the exciting task in Tübingen with the builders!
