We develop architecture that is comprehensively sustainable on the basis of a holistic perspective. The sustainability of what is built is the result of a balanced and qualified consideration of spatial, ecological, economic, functional, technical, social and communicative qualities, in relation to the construction phase and the whole lifetime of the building. Here people as the users, inhabitants and visitors of architecture are at the centre of attention.
The starting point of a project – from studies of urban planning and building to interior design – is the evaluation of all relevant conditions of the task, of the location and of the client’s requirements in relation to technological and ecological standards.
From the very early phases of the project we work closely with experts from the field of the sustainable optimisation of architecture. This ensures in every case that the latest innovative ecological and technical standards are incorporated into the planning process. To make sure that all sustainability criteria are considered, we coordinate an integrated general planning team with clear communication structures and a customised working process from the first conception until the phase of use.
Sustainable architecture means high and durable quality, long-term retention of value, economic efficiency, and reliability of planning and costs. It is part of our responsibility as architects towards our clients, society and the public space.
Since 2007 kadawittfeldarchitektur has been a member of the German Sustainable Building Council (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen e.V).
The sustainability criteria of the DGNB are actively integrated into the planning of our projects, right from the competition phases and the establishment of basic principles by the DGNB’s own auditors. Construction projects can be guided to a DGNB certification goal without interface problems by direct communication within kadawittfeldarchitektur.
Through close cooperation with experienced consulting companies, further building assessments such as LEED or BREEAM can be added.
