Modernisation Berna­dotte­straße 18 - 24

Project description

The existing buildings with six two-room flats, 12 three-room flats and six four-room flats were modernised to make them more energy-efficient (reduction of energy consumption) and the entire technical building services installation (e.g. ventilation), including the bathrooms, was renovated. Instead of the existing attic, a new, additional residential floor was created with one four-room, two three-room and four two-room flats. The apartment buildings will thus have 31 privately financed flats on four floors in future.


The apartment buildings are located in the area of the Parkwohnanlage West (PWA) housing complex, which is protected as an ensemble. They are part of the overall district concept, consisting of conversion with addition of storeys, modernisation with addition of storeys, basic modernisation and new construction.

Energy standard

The buildings meet the EnEV standard. This standard provides clear guidelines for the thermal insulation of houses. This includes, for example, façade insulation or the use of renewable energies.

Special features

One organisational challenge is modernising the building while it's occupied. All parts of the buildings were constructed in the original colour and building form of the 1960s on account of the ensemble protection.
