Hotel Bauhofstrasse | Ludwigsburg, Germany

This fancy German hotel not only adds a chic aesthetic to its surroundings; it’s also the first carbon-neutral building in town! 🌿

Hotel Bauhofstrasse, located in Ludwigsburg, Germany, is a modular building system made of wood built near the city’s baroque castle in order to bring new life to the local district 🌟

A total of 440 cubic meters of wood were used in construction, leading to an extract of up to 880 tons of CO2 through storage and substitution effects 🪵 The use of the concrete – a CO2-intensive material – is compensated for by the wood implemented, resulting in CO2-neutrality.

“There is considerable potential regarding construction-site logistics in the city centre,” said German architecture studio VON M GmbH. “The negative impact from construction traffic, building site facilities and noise is reduced.”

Hats off!

The cool new features we brought to you in 2022 (and what’s in store for 2023)

2022… For some it may have been the year in which covid restrictions ended. The year of inflation. COP27. King Charles (and maybe also of Harry and Meghan). Heat. And cold. For us too. But for us, 2022 was also the year of exciting new developments.
