ACTIVE HOUSE B10 - WHERE THE FUTURE LIVES
Research project living. With the Aktivhaus B10, the future of living is turned into an experience – including all imaginable and useful innovations, intelligent materials, designs and technologies. And sustainability lives here too.
FUTURE LIVING BY WERNER SOBEK
Since July 2014, the world’s first »energy-plus house« (German: Aktivhaus) can be found in the Stuttgart neighbourhood »Weißenhofsiedlung«. The address »Bruckmannweg 10« completes the name: »Aktivhaus B10«. It was planned and implemented by architect and engineer Professor Werner Sobek and SchwörerHaus KG, which specializes in prefabrication in timber construction. Werner Sobek says: »The Aktivhaus B10 shows how a sustainable building, new mobility concepts and a residence-related energy supply can co-exist in an intelligent and sustainable way.«
TEAMWORK WITH SCHWÖRERHAUS KG
SchwörerHaus KG, Hohenstein, carried out trendsetting work here in terms of prefabrication and assembly. It was clearly shown here, too, that the long-standing and strong partnership with Hasenkopf Industrie Manufaktur – also a partner and sponsor of the project – created the best preconditions. The experienced team executed this complex project in a very short time indeed. The innovative Aktivhaus B10 was designed and its parts were manufactured in just eight months. The assembly took only one day. Amazing and convincing at the same time. In the interior work, the Designer White Corian above all represents modernity, clarity and ease of living of the future.
2 YEARS OF RESEARCH
Over the course of this research project, data on energy production and consumption as well as for building research will be continuously collected over the course of two years. All this against the background that the Aktivhaus B10 was built with minimal and completely recyclable resources. Thanks to a self-learning automation system, it produces twice as much electricity from renewable energy sources as it needs itself. It meets all requirements of the Triple-Zero standard: zero energy, zero emissions, zero waste.
