New construction NWS - Neues Wohnen Sünders­bühl

Project description

The site was occupied by existing buildings from the 1950s, which could only be adapted to today’s housing requirements at very high cost. A planning report was commissioned to determine the best urban development solution.
The new replacement building offers modern and barrier-free, partly wheelchair-accessible living space for different population groups. Commercial units will be integrated into the ground floor of the building to expand the existing offer in the district.
The orientation of the building and the floor plans take into account the busy Rothenburger Straße. The necessary parking spaces will be integrated into the underground garage.


The building project is located in the Sündersbühl district. It is located directly at the intersection of Bertha-von-Suttner-Straße and Rothenburger Straße.

Energy standard

Based on the requirements of EnEV 2016, a future-oriented energy concept with the use of district heating, air-to-water heat pumps, photovoltaic systems and a data network for smart meter requirements was intended. Using smart metering systems, electricity consumption can thus be quickly determined and, if necessary, reduced. 

Special features

In addition to subsidised housing, the project also includes a SIGENA support point (neighbourhood and care support point) and the new wbg South-West Customer Centre, which will expand the social offer and customer service in the district.
