Schwerte | Residential Houses at Lenningkamp

The following sustainable, future-oriented measures are being integrated into a new residential area for about 400 people on the eastern edge of Schwerte-Helzen: orientation of the main spaces, balconies and winter gardens oriented southward, high quality insulation and building envelopes, heat supply via a block plant and low temperature heating, automatically controlled ventilation through elements in the outer walls, passive solar use, gray water use, and the minimal use of paving. The residences range from 2 rooms with ca. 47 sm to 4 room maisonettes with over 90 sm. As the exact functional organization is not yet determined, the needs of non-traditional user groups are also challenging to regard at this point.
