Let’s be honest: superior architecture so far meant first of all superior design, an innovative, unusual design. But in age of climate change, ever stringent energy saving laws, resource scarcity with simultaneously increasing comfort requirements everything changes – especially the thinking. Without crossing the limits, the “Crossover” of disciplines nothing is done. The overall observation of buildings, die synergies of structural physics, solar thermal energy, geothermal energy, photovoltaic are the only way to achieve maximum comfort with minimum operational costs. It is only possible, if architects and engineers collectively develop intelligent building- and energy concepts. Concept that make sense ecologically as well as economically. And a nee, revolutionary architecture can emerge: the ideal conjunction of aesthetics and function.
...technology is also not the only thing
Understanding is the key. Banal? Totally the opposite: Architects think about buildings. Building engineers think about practicable technology. Building owners and investors think about maximum return. We understand. And we think about everything together. Planning, conception and realization of anti-fossil energy concepts, which not only offers the free space for design. Which are not only suitable for daily use, but also economically relevant. And to profitably market the minimum energy consumption beside the greatest possible comfort of utilization. In comparison to the climate control with fossil energy, the operational costs of a Hotel system are reduced in Spa-area (1,038 m2, 28 Beds, 2 Pools, Whirlpool, Sauna, Hammam) from 17,800 to 2,900 Euro p.a.. It is not difficult to imagine, what it means for the operator.
We support architects in the modeling phase
However, such holistic building climate concepts emerge only if one has an understanding built upon interdisciplinarity beside long experience and Know-how. Like us. Our international Team made of engineers and scientists supports architects in the modeling phase. Beginning from energy demand calculations, comprehensive building planning, computer simulations, the resulting energy - and system concepts and necessary Product-, controls- and Software developments. Up to the suggestions for the design integration of solar construction elements in the architecture. But it is self-evident, isn’t it?
