Berlin Siemensstadt² Modul1, Berlin, Allemagne
In the district Spandau, East of Berlin, a modern and urban living and working environment for Siemens AG is being built on the old Siemensstadt site, an area of more than 70 hectares: Siemensstadt².
("²" also in German pronounced "square", in this case)
The “technologies of tomorrow” will be developed and produced there.
According to the master plan, the historic building stock designed by architect Hans Hertlein will be supplemented with the Tower and Campus Center buildings to form an ensemble of old and new and will become a strip, marketplace, campus and forecourt. The first floors will then form an urban base and public access to the new Siemensstadt.
Siemens plans to construct two future-oriented office buildings, a high-rise and a campus center, under the heading of "grandchild-proof construction", which will meet the objective of a climate-neutral campus and thus meet the requirements of Siemens to be climate-neutral in 2030. To achieve this, innovative paths are to be taken and all decisions are to be made in an integral planning process with regard to the entire ecological life cycle.
Transsolar is collaborating on the lighthouse project with outstanding sustainability goals through passive design strategies, such as building structures with very good envelope area ratios, with facades optimized according to cardinal directions, Brise-Solei solar shading and use of thermics for ventilation. Active building technology should also function without CO2 emissions by integrating existing environmental energy potentials such as the earth, groundwater, waste heat and solar energy. The buildings themselves become "prosumers", i.e. power plants in their own right.
Our calculation models, daylight simulations, dynamic building load and system simulations, as well as flow simulations allow predictions for minimizing technical systems and adapting passive systems.
Transsolar is collaborating in the planning team on topics such as life cycle assessment of new buildings over the entire life cycle, as well as sustainability certification according to the LEED certification system and health certification according to the WELL certification system
