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!
