Klimaschutzpartner Berlin 2024 | Winner | Category C: Projects of Public Institutions

In this year’s “climate protection partner of the year” awards (“Klimaschutzpartner des Jahres”), the project “Holz Ziegel Lehm – Pilot Project for Sustainable Housing Berlin” emerged as the winner in category C: “projects of public institutions”. The research and construction project is being realised by STADT UND LAND Wohnbauten-Gesellschaft mbH together with the planning team of ZRS Architekten and Bruno Fioretti Marquez. Two new buildings, one in timber-clay and one in brick construction demonstrate the potential of sustainable construction in public rental housing. The planning and construction process as well as the usage of both buildings is scientifically monitored and evaluated by the TU Berlin, the University of Stuttgart and the TU Braunschweig.

Britta Behrendt, State Secretary for Climate Protection and the Environment in the Senate Department for Urban Mobility, Transport, Climate Action and the Environment, praised the project in her laudatory speech: “The award-winning project supports Berlin’s path to climate neutrality, resource conservation and the circular economy in an exemplary manner. It shows that Berlin’s state housing associations are not only aware of their social responsibility but also are willing to make their contribution to climate and environmental protection. They are leading the way as pioneers in climate-friendly and sustainable construction, while also supporting the education of future architects at universities.”
