Values for the future
Only sustainable, ecologically produced raw materials were used for the renovation and refurbishment: natural materials for the insulation, with plaster and paints of lime and quartz to make the character of the historic walls tangible, as well as local, preferably old, wood. The furniture, designed in-house, is entirely made of wood – down to the dowels and screws – and is therefore recyclable.
In planning the new townhouse, the aim was to ensure that its daily running was as energy-efficient as possible. The building uses district heating, mostly ecologically sourced, as well as 100% green electricity. The principle of heat recovery enables energy and water to be used sparingly and also allows the pool to be heated without energy loss.
The holistic sustainability concept takes into account every detail: menus made of apple leather, table linen made of fabric, reusable bottles and barrels so as to avoid waste, and the holistic utilisation of locally produced, predominantly plant-based foods.
