Residential Complex Neue Burg, Wolfsburg

Residential Complex Neue Burg, Wolfsburg

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.
