Innovative living

Eco-friendly living is important to us. We have therefore built Thuringia’s first passive house apartment building on Kunitzer Strasse in east Jena. We offer a three storey building with twelve barrier-free 2 and 3 room apartments for rental with living areas ranging from 69 m² to 96 m². All apartments are easily accessible by elevator.

The future-oriented energy concept includes a decentralised ventilation system with heat exchangers, triple-glazed windows and high-quality thermal insulation which ensures a constant room temperature. Along with a rooftop terrace, the roof area has a solar energy system for the provision of hot water.

And the result? Thanks to the innovative passive house principle, each apartment uses a mere 14.66 kWh/m² of energy per year. In comparison: the average German apartment has an annual energy consumption of 181.3 kWh/m².*
