    Mont Cenis Academy in Herne

    Untitled-444649 Herne: This is not a housing estate, but the concept could equally be applied to housing. The Naturhuset apartment house by Bengt Warne in Stockholm was one of the first pioneering buildings to implement the house-in-house principle with a shell of glass. Also the Student dormitory ESA in Kaiserslautern is built like this. The project in Herne, however, is the most spectacular of its kind in this form.
    The building, designed in partnership by the German architectural firm HHS Planer & Architekten AG and the French architectural firm Jourda & Perraudin (Francoise Helene Jourda and Gilles Perraudin), is enclosed in a glass climate shell that creates a Mediterranean climate similar to that in Nice. This is on average 5 °C warmer than the outside temperature. Water features, earth channels and large gates prevent overheating in summer. The solar system in the roof, was the largest building-integrated system of its kind at the time. The supports inside are made of 56 spruce trunks. Completion: 1999

    Art Nouveau Ensemble "Mathildenhöhe" in Darmstadt

    64287 Darmstadt: On the Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt, a unique architectural ensemble consisting of buildings, landscaped gardens with sculptures, interior architecture and design was created within 16 years. Darmstadt developed into a center of Art Nouveau through the artists' colony on the Mathildenhöhe. It was founded by the Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig and the publisher Alexander Koch. During the time of its existence, 23 artists belonged to it. The work of these members and other important personalities in Darmstadt from 1898 to 1914 set the tone for subsequent developments in art and architecture far beyond the events on Mathildenhöhe. Art Nouveau, with its ornamentation and organic building forms, continues to have an influence on the design of ecological settlements or sustainable neighbourhoods to this day. Construction from 1899. Completion: 1914
