Architecture Innovation Laboratory stands for our approach to designing sustainable architecture, bringing innovative developments into practice and preparing new ideas in research. We draw on many years of planning and construction experience, realised innovation projects and numerous research projects. Our construction and design concepts integrate novel materials and technologies of lightweight and energy-efficient construction as well as multifunctional facades. We organise interdisciplinary teams and work from idea generation to successful structural realisation.

Solar facade in Burbach almost completed
The solar facade in Burbach was prefabricated in the factory and the shell is now fully assembled. The polygonal concrete structure will be fitted with small-format solar modules of approx. 22×22 cm in different colours and solar orientation in November. Our newly developed exchangeable module fastening system will be used for the first time.
