Passivhausaward 2021 | Special Recognition

International Architecture Award for energy-efficient Buildings

The Passive House Award recognizes internationally energy-efficient buildings. We are delighted that our project MPREIS Weer has received a Special Recognition at the Passivhausaward 2021. The award ceremony took place on September 10th in the historic town hall of Wuppertal.

At MPREIS Weer a food market is woven into the surrounding landscape as a way of focussing on the origins and the quality of the produce. The local context and landscape features such as fields, trees and grass are translated into surface and space with the help of both natural and man-made techniques.

The building is executed to passive house standards and exclusively warmed by heat recovered from the extract air. Cooling is provided by natural night-time ventilation. The areas of glazing and the canopy are optimised in terms of the motion of the sun and the roof is fully equipped with photovoltaic panels. Batteries store the solar energy in order to increase yield and improve supply security.
