The new administrative headquarters of RAG Stiftung and RAG AG is located at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein in Essen. It is the first project in Germany that has implemented comprehensive measures inspired by the cradle-to-cradle principles (C2C); moreover, it has received a DGNB certificate with the highest Platinum rating. Following the maxim “… every square metre of World Heritage is valuable”, the accessible planted roof compensates for the building footprint and returns the covered area back to nature and mankind. The position in the grounds at the transition zone of cultural and natural landscape is well chosen and enables the new build to demonstrate a high degree of independence. The closed-loop building generates energy, functions as a material bank and meets the highest requirements in terms of indoor air quality. The roof garden not only increases the biodiversity for flora and fauna and affects an improvement of the micro climate and air quality, it also functions as a space for the building occupants to linger, relax and communicate.

The application of the C2C approach to architecture  delivers economic, social and environmental benefits. The new build functions as a material bank and power plant, is flexible in its  use and reversible in its design. And moreover it has a social impact, because it offers a healthy work environment as well as  an increase of biodiversity and added value space.

Realization: 2016-2018
