The modern passive house plan for a narrow lot with large windows

Architect Georg Schauer

 Model House Alpenchic is one of the most innovative model houses in Europe. It combines traditional, alpine elements with modern Bauhaus architecture.

The facade of the wooden shingles combined with large glass surfaces is light and modern. This is accentuated by filigree loggias and a postmodern-style entrance group.

 Alpenchic is also the first Minergie-A-ECO-certified building in Germany to receive the Sentinel health certificate.

 Innovative layout solutions and technical details, such as the storage cellar, have been incorporated into the concept with the newly developed heating system technology and its own wind turbine for LED lighting.

 The modern non-volatile house is a model of comfort and coziness. 100% tested, for quality, construction!

Like every home from Baufritz, the new show house satisfies the highest standards of living comfort and sustainability. Chemical building materials and health-endangering materials were not used. The ecological high-tech architecture made from renewable woods instead stores over 50 tonnes of CO2. For a healthy climate, the insulation made of wood chips, either produced during production or come from controlled FSC-certified wood cultivation. The health concept of this design wooden house ensures that the residents can look forward to a guaranteed healthy indoor climate.

The proof provides the Baufritz room air measurement shortly after moving in with a health certificate from an independent institute. A patented electrosmog protection level protects up to 98 percent of the external electromagnetic radiation. Alpenchic is the first German model house to receive the Swiss Minergie-A-Eco certificate for the outstanding building biology and energy overall concept. The "A" stands for zero energy houses. "Eco" guarantees the client that only healthy building materials were used. Also, the "gray energy" of a building from the production to the later dismantling flows into this evaluation. That is real climate protection.
