In the “most compact factory in the world”, Weissenseer produces high-quality building shells whose compactness and tightness make up the most important part of a passive house. The compactness of the factory is also synonymous with cooperation and the careful handling of land, soil, landscape and environment.
The production hall has a north-south orientation and meets passive house standards. The energy supply for heating the hall is achieved by activating the floor slab, which has been fully covered with underfloor heating. The energy comes from the waste heat produced by two compressed air compressors and the production machines.
The two-floor square office building with internal atrium sits slightly offset within the U-shaped structure of the production hall and offers space for around 35 employees. A cylindrical skylight with side glazing allows daylight and sun to enter the interior of the building. The offices on the upper floor are accessed via an open gallery, which can also be used multifunctionally as a meeting area.
The entire building is designed as a passive house almost purely constructed from wood and comprises a production hall of 2,675 m², warehouses of 1,050 m² and 915 m² of office space over 2 floors.
