Info

The approximately 28,000 square meter site is located in the middle of an industrial zone that has been increasingly transformed in the recent years. Living and working are being combined in the Heerdt district and the boundaries between uses are increasingly blending. In this context, the climate campus concept underscores the change in use of the neighborhood. In the future, a variety of commercial use concepts can be located on the up to 63,000 square meters big area.
 
The urban ensemble will develop a strong identity that promotes community and implements sustainability in harmony with flora and fauna.
 
Our vision - creating community
Diverse commercial use concepts and flexible spaces invite local stakeholders to network. In addition to spaces for commercial industries of the future such as start-ups and laboratories, there will also be spaces for co-working and co-crafting spaces - spaces for Industry 4.0. The open spaces and nature on campus create a lively and vibrant area, creating an offering between leisure and work.
 
Offerings such as a fitness center or gastronomy as well as walkable community rooftops complement the multi-layered, multi-modal and climate-neutral idea of the commercial campus.
 
Building climate resilience
Climate resilience is integrated into all stages of the Green Campus development: from the different facade typologies to the rooftop uses, from the walkways to the on-campus mobility system. The holistic and integral energy and sustainability concept considers both building construction and building use.
 
Diversity is encouraged by the urban design character: Green roofs and outdoor spaces are designed as biodiversity catalysts. The entire green spaces are an integral part of these modern working environments. As a result, urban nature can always be experienced in the campus, so that biodiversity is integrated at all scales: Working in harmony with flora and fauna.
 
Sustainable raw materials and resources
Even the deconstruction of the current industrial hall is already included in the planning according to the principle of circular economy. Materials can thus be reused or recycled. For the new building, materials are to be used that minimize the ecological footprint. By reducing life-cycle costs, the buildings in the quarter have intelligent ecological concepts that produce healthy living spaces and increase the efficiency of the buildings beyond the planning phase.
