Green Solution House demonstrates a holistic approach to sustainable building. And VELUX modular skylights are a central element.

At Green Solution House, every component in the building contributes to circular sustainability.

Daylight plays an important role in the ambitious sustainability strategy of the hotel and conference centre. In order to maximize daylight, 196 modular Ridgelight modules were installed in the large, inner courtyard and atrium.

The design of the entire building complex is based on the criteria of the Active House​ vision, inspired by the cradle-to-cradle lifecycle concept, and certified to the high standards of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).

  • 196 Ridgelight 25-40° modules provide large amounts of natural daylight to the internal courtyard.
  • One third of the modular skylights are fitted with integrated photovoltaics to boost the building’s green profile.
  • The building is designed for disassembly and constructed of recyclable materials.

Green Solution House won the Active House Label Award in 2016 and serves as an innovative laboratory for sustainable building and living.
