An old factory building erected in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, in 1910 was converted into one of the most modern buildings in the capital as part of the “e-living of the future” construction/media project. The aim of the project was to create a home living experience that meets all aesthetic, practical and technical requirements. The 2,600 m² Project 4, designed as ‘energy efficiency home 55’, consists of three parts: a showroom, 32 residential units and an “e-office of the future” in the penthouse.
Our solutions: Energy-efficient windows
To meet the high energy efficiency requirements, the planners opted to install our GENEO window profiles. Produced with no thermal bridges, yet narrow in terms of profile (86 mm), they save up to 76% energy.
Heating and cooling
Our underfloor heating/cooling solution guarantees energy-saving temperature control – 12,000 m of RAUTHERM S pipes and around 2,000 m² of stud plates were installed for this purpose.
High-quality sanitary installations
Water management was another key aspect of Project 4. For this reason, the planners decided to utilize our RAUTITAN installation system. Over 900 m of the sound-absorbing above-ground drainage system RAUPIANO PLUS disposes of waste water quietly, thereby enhancing the quality of life in the complex.
