EULEB

EULEB – EUropean high quality and Low Energy Buildings

The EU-funded project “EUropean high quality Low Energy Buildings" informs about existing, public, high quality and low energy non-residential buildings from all over Europe. The EULEB-website shows data, plans, pictures, video clips, diagrams etc. of 25 European buildings in operation. Detail principals and technologies of sustainability are described as well as properties like economy, energy efficiency, and comfort. All information is available in five languages. Project partners: Four European universities and REHVA – Federation of European Heating Ventilation and Air-conditioning, TU Dortmund being the coordinating partner.

TeMotion

“TeMotion” Integrierte Fassade

Development of modular facade systems with integrated services for conditioning of room climate (heating, ventilating, cooling, lighting) and solar energy supply, commissioned by Hydro Building Systems to a consortium of manufacturers, expert consultants and scientists. Prototype mock-up 2004, subsequent erection and monitoring of a test facade. Awards by Batimat, ´Innovation 2005´.

Specialist Counselling

KfW55-Wohnungsneubau

"Siebengebirgsterrassen Bonn" Energy efficient housing

Expert consulting for energy concept (biomethane fired cogeneration, district heating, roof integrated photovoltaics), energy proof according to German building regulations EnEV and funding requirement “Energy Efficient House KfW55”. Energy modelling, building physics. Completion 2018.

Kunstsammlung NRW

Kunstsammlung NRW

The building from the 80s with an excellent collection of fine art is checked on actual requirements for museum lighting: Quality of object- and room illumination for visitors, object damage by radiation, energy- and cost efficiency. By simultaneous measurements of illuminance, damaging radiation, and luminance and calculations of annual exposure and radiation the fulfillment of requirements of CIE 157-2004, ICOM recommendations, DIN EN 12464-1 and German Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations are checked. Additionally the user acceptance is evaluated.

Pinwheel

Pinwheel, Rita McBride

MalmöLive, Proposal for south facing waterfront, 2014

Suncatcher

Malmö Live: Suncatcher and Pinwheel

Proposals of art in the new building complex of concert hall, congress center and hotel were developed in co-operation with the artist Rita McBride , invited by the Department of Culture of Malmö. Suncatcher: The installation redirects sunlight into the wedge between buildings and disperses it into rainbow colours by „holographical raindrops“. No solar tracking, artificial sun at night.

Seele Fertigungshalle

Seele Production Hall, Gersthofen

Expert consulting for daylighting, solar protection and glazing technology in co-operation with architect Thomas Herzog and client Gerhard Seele. Objective was a daylit, clinically white hall for advanced glass manufacturing and minimized cooling loads.

Kolumba Kunstmuseum

Kolumba Art Museum Cologne

Expert consulting for an architecturally integrated energy concept for a new museum building. Constituent measures: Geothermal heating (heat pump) and cooling by ground tubes, heated / chilled room surfaces; mechanical ventilation from ceiling to floor, depending on number of visitors; monolithic external brick walls 60 cm; humidity absorbing clay plaster inside; daylighting. Completion 2007. Architect: Peter Zumthor; HVAC experts: Kahlert Engineers. Several Awards for museum architecture, energy efficiency etc.
