Describe the key innovation and technology aspects of the project

Project Narrative

The building has no heating, ventilation or cooling system, the flow of energy being controlled by software. Above all, however, this is a stone building with walls, doors and high-ceilinged rooms. It needs little grey energy, and elementary architectural means are used to create a sense of well-being that derives from the pleasant proportions and self-explanatory use. The constructional and energy-related foundations needed to achieve this effect illustrate the know-how bebaumschlagereberle has built up over 28 years. The envelope has a cavity wall structure with each wall consisting of 36-ce
