M1 Entwurf Haus der Energiewende in Kaisersesch


Students: Eva Krings
Course of studies: M.Sc. Architecture
Semester: Summer semester 2021
Supervisor: Lisa von Wittenhorst, M.Sc.
Teaching and research area for real estate project development

As part of the design work M1 in SoSe 21, the students developed a sustainable and energy-efficient design for a house of the energy turnaround in Kaisersesch, which is to be built in the context of the reallabor SmartQuart, in which iPE, among others, is involved.

Exciting spaces for exhibitions, lectures and hospitality were to be created on just under 400 sqm GFA. The wish of the community was to create a symbolic building with supra-regional appeal. As part of a smart energy quarter, the sustainable and resource-saving construction method as well as a climate-neutral heating and cooling supply were of great importance in the planning.

The students' designs were presented at a project presentation in August 2021 to representatives of the Kaisersesch community and the SmartQuart reallaboratory, among others.

To the event: Energy-optimized buildings

Student research project by Eva Krings

The new house of the energy turnaround in Kaisersesch for the project SmartQuart stands in its architectural realization for innovation and sustainable building. Just like the project itself, it is intended to develop a supra-regional appeal and demonstrate new possibilities for future architecture. The title "Everything under one roof" is emblematic of the dissolved and highly flexible building structure, which consists of a total of five cubes. These are united under a cantilevered roof. Characteristic for the Visitor:Interior Center are the aspects of recyclability of the construction, the resource-efficient building technology, the fungibility of the floor plan and the innovation of the project, which is to be embodied by the building. In terms of construction, special attention was paid to the choice of materials - all of which are required to have the highest possible pre- and post-use content.

Primary energy demand is kept to a minimum by zoning the building into a buffer zone and the occupied spaces. The energy required comes primarily from the photvoltaic system, which finds its place on the large-scale roof. A close exchange between the SmartQuart project and the Haus der Energiewende is established - surplus energy can be fed in. The great flexibility of the campus-like structure enables subsequent use of the building, even after the SmartQuart project. Deconstruction or even expansion are easily feasible. Finally, the building should demonstrate innovative and new possibilities in construction. The textile facade, which is equipped with LED lights, unites the building in the truest sense of supraregional radiance. Thus, aspects that are essential for a sustainable building can be combined under one roof.
