Sustainable wood-hybrid construction
The housing estate with 17 residential buildings in the south of the North Sea island of Sylt was built using an ecological wood-hybrid construction method with geothermal heat pumps for energy generation. A total of 23 residential units for local residents with living areas of 55 to 145 square meters were realized in 17 houses on long-term leasehold land.
Merging with the landscape
The facades are finished with untreated, pre-dried timber cladding that takes on a silver-grey appearance over time. Depending on the weather and light conditions, the residential buildings form a connection with the island landscape, which is also influenced by the green roofs overgrown with native plants. Large and floor-to-ceiling glazing also ensures bright and light-flooded interiors.
