The building is heated by a heat pump from geothermal energy. In addition to renewable raw materials, numerous recycled materials were used. The green roof buffers the rainfall and provides a regulation of temperature in summer. Due to the roof overhang on the south side and the possibility of ventilation, overheating can be avoided.
