The property is located in Zossen in the Wünsdorf district, only a few hundred metres from the railway station. The town of Zossen in the district of Teltow-Fläming, south of Berlin, is well connected by both regional train and motorway.
On a large oblong plot, a three-storey commercial and multi-family building (of building class 3) is being built here, which steps down to the garden side. Three separate commercial spaces with direct access from the street are planned for the ground floor of the new building. Four flats with east-west orientation and spacious terraces facing the garden are being built on the two upper floors. The flats with open floor plans inside open up to the outside space through generous floor-level French doors onto the terrace with forest views stretching along the entire length of the building. Access is via a central staircase with lift, so that all flats on the upper floors can be reached barrier-free.
The repetition of construction elements, such as the use of only one window module, which is used either singly or doubled in both façades, and a compact building form, on the one hand achieves economic efficiency and on the other hand results in a high energy efficiency of the building. In terms of design, a uniform and harmonious appearance is created.
The insulated building envelope consists of monolithic walls plastered on both sides and wooden windows with 3-pane glazing. A heat pump generates the energy for heating and hot water. The roof area provided with an extensive green roof contributes to a comfortable indoor climate – it provides thermal protection in winter and heat insulation in summer. In addition, the local climate is improved and a habitat for plants, insects and small animals is created.
