Kita Göttingen in Germany by Despang Architekten

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Article source: Despang Architekten

The new day care center of Göttingen University is the most recent case study of several typological educational prototypes Despang Architekten has investigated in within the last years. The strategy of this project is a symbiosis of architecture and nature with a high ecological standard. The symbiosis was achieved through mainly berming the building and opening it with a passive solar “curtain wall” towards the south. Part of the goal was the development of a by the best value of the inflationary term sustainable building, which besides other performative aspects has a very low heating and cooling demand. Critical and fundamental in the design process was the maximum exposure to the south and closure to the north with optimized insulation. Access to the building is given from the east and utilizes the given infrastructure of the two adjacent buildings.
