Residential Architecture: Linienstr. 23 by  BCO Architekten: “..this all-grey apartment block..has five skewed bay windows that twist away from its facade..Below these windows, a narrow strip of glazing reveals a basement-level gallery located beneath the apartments..Energy Concept: the “Passivhaus” is totally energy-optimised. The highly insulated building envelope consists of an eiFs system with 3-way glazing..Room temperature is regulated by a ventilation system with 98% heat recovery..The low remaining heating requirements are served by a geothermal installation and solar collectors on the roof..”  Sharp, creative, sustainable..

    Excellent attention to energy-efficient details. Love the playful skewed windows.
