On behalf of the IFEU Institute Heidelberg CULTUREBRIDGE ARCHITECTS develops a Passivhouse on the Silk Road.

The extreme climate in in Central Asia is a special challenge. Summer with up to 40 degrees, winter with -30 degrees. In cooperation with the Passivhausinstitut Darmstadt a concept develops, which provides comfortable indoor climate for restaurants, cafes, shops, offices and apartments without heating and cooling devices with a minimum of energy consumption. 

As the building shall prove, that sustainability can also be feasible,we aim to reach great effect with simple measures. The project profits from close cooperation between German experts and the local partners and our more than five years project experience in China.
