As part of the redesign and transformation of this 1960s residential development in Wolfsburg, the existing buildings were lowered to four stories and a penthouse story and roof terrace added. The 116 apartments were given a contemporary footprint and, with a primary energy requirement of approx. 35 KWh(m²/a) meet the standard for new buildings. Balconies, loggias, and terraces create a new appearance and emphasize the location’s proximity to natural surroundings at the edge of the forest.
