GEWOFAG Residential Area in the Ecological Model Settlement
In the Ecological Model Settlement, municipal housing association GEWOFAG built residential buildings in hybrid wood construction. The core of each building consists of a reinforced concrete frame with concrete ceilings and supports, while the facades are made of wood. Building materials consist to a large extent of renewable raw materials that have been obtained through sustainable management. The two five-storey houses, containing a total of 180 apartments, face each other in an L-shape. A low structure was added to the eastern building, in which a children‘s day nursery is located.
