All our actions and efforts are driven by a vision. We want to fulfil dreams that are as energy-saving and comfortable as possible. Today, tomorrow and in every life stage. The energy requirements for buildings have become much tighter in recent years. For us, this means using innovation to always stay one step ahead.
On top of this, technicians in our development department are constantly working on intelligent solutions. Last but not least, we are often involved in research projects to identify today what we need tomorrow – for instance, to respond to demographic changes, mobile living, increasing population densities in urban areas and the recyclability of building materials.
FlyingSpaces, our solution for flexible living: They are cost-effective, quickly built, can be repositioned and function as apartments for singles as well as children's day care centres. The compact modules are predestined for filling empty urban spaces – as a roof attachments, extensions or clever mini-houses.
Modern hybrid construction Schwörer city lofts.
The multi-storey town house as a prefabricated house with a loft-type structure: with its high degree of prefabrication, this is residential space that is cost-efficient and quick to implement. It was constructed for the first time at an international building exhibition in 2013. Case Study No. 2 was completed in Pfullingen, south-west Germany, in the summer of 2015.
The Energy Plus house is a concept that generates more energy than itself uses, making this available for electro-mobility, for example.
Energy Plus house
Since 2010, a number of show house have been built as Energy Plus houses. The SCHÖNER WOHNEN house in Hohenstein-Oberstetten was the first Energy Plus object. The Energy Plus house in Cologne's Frechen district has just completed two years of monitoring by the Fraunhofer Insitute, Europe's largest application-oriented research organisation.
Supported by the federal government in the field of exploiting electro-mobility and developed in conjunction with the AlphaEos Institute and Professor Werner Sobek in Stuttgart: The Active House B10 generates twice as much energy from sustainable sources as it can use itself, provides energy for a neighbouring building subject to planning restrictions, can be rebuilt elsewhere and can be fully returned to the materials cycle.
In a joint research project, LebensPhasenHaus (life stages house), researchers from the University of Tübingen and the University Clinic Tübingen are collaborating on solutions related to self-determined living in later life. The building was constructed by SchwörerHaus.
A variety of assistance systems have been incorporated that are being tested and extended over the ten-year project phase. SchwörerHaus has been responding to demographic change for years now, offering a high level of living comfort and optional easy-to-access fixtures and fittings in its houses. FlyingSpace is ideally suitable for low-barrier designs.
