 Project summaryThree multi-family houses built between 1949 and 1957 have been modernised and given an energy efficient retrofit with the aim of achieving a CO2-neutral heat supply. The urban densification of the existing space by construction of a fourth (new) building and the addition of another floor on each of the three existing buildings made this project, located in an attractive area in Munich's city center, financially attractive for the building owner, the housing company GWG Munich. Project highlights
