AND TRIPLE STRATEGY
The design of the building itself is based on several parameters to show a holistic approach to sustainability. The building is certified to the standards of the recognised German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), based on the criteria of the Active House vision and inspired by the Cradle to Cradle® framework. The building and landscape present the latest developments in the field of sustainable architecture; we show that sustainability involves more than aspiring to green certification, and that it is possible to quantify our project’s high quality on the basis of several parameters.
When we choose materials and products for Green Solution House they have to meet or exceed high standards. We developed our own criteria to select materials, prioritising certifications and environmental labels, recyclability, social responsibility, use of resources, safety of compounds, and energy in production, to name a few. We send out questionnaires to producers and suppliers, in order to gain knowledge of the ingredients, installation options and production methods. If a material or product has harmful substances or a negative production footprint, we source alternatives. As a result we have many solutions that are designed for disassembly, Cradle to Cradle Certified™, and have a positive impact beyond their mere function.
