Claudius-Höfe Bochum
Integrative Multigenerational Living

Competition 1st prize

Cooperation with Rehwaldt Landschaftsarchitekten, Dresden

Client: Matthias-Claudius-Sozialwerk Bochum e.V.
(MCS Bochum e.V.)
Service: Architectural services, phases 2 – 8 HOAI
Completion: 12/2012
Gross floor area: 14,600 m²
Awards: State prize for Architecture, Housing and Urban Development in North Rhine-Westphalia 2017 (prize winner); German Clients Award New Building 2016 (prize winner); BDA Architecture Award 2014 Bochum (honourable mention); FIABCI Prix d'Excellence Germany 2014 (Official Selection); KfW-Award "Building and Living" 2014 (honorable mention); "Place of Progress 2013/2014" North Rhine-Westphalia Ministry of Sciences; BMWi-Award 2009 "Architecture with energy - building of the future"


A New Urban Quarter – Networked Inside and Out
The design has as its objective the creation of a clearly legible urban district with its own identity, networked in multiple ways with its environment and integrated into the surrounding city. In this way, communal, integrative and individual living in neighbourhoods is made possible. The heart of the Claudius-Höfe is the market square as a central public space. The site is characterized by differentiated exterior spaces. Spatial and design individuality build identity.

Inside, the configuration of the buildings generates its own order and creates a protected space. Guided by the principle of ”residential resource conservation“, a multitude of energy-saving measures become self-evident elements of a forward-looking architecture. A visible sign of this goal will be the filigree construction of the ”energy tower” on the marketplace. The entire project is barrier-free and handicapped-accessible.

Sustainability
The buildings are designed to meet the 3-litre standard for energy conservation. Heating is provided by a connection to the district heating system. 60% of hot water demand is met by thermal solar heating systems. This innovative energy concept is supplemented by large-scale photovoltaic systems.
