The emergence of the house in time-lapse

Architecture and basic houses

Architect Jürgen Lohmann, head of the contracted architectural bureau Lohmann Architekten BDA, selected a simple cube with an innovative facade design. The ground floor extends out into a framed outdoor space delineated by open beams. The playfully arranged windows in wide-ranging sizes lend the building a unique character.

"In this project we took the opportunity to implement our architectural vision in association with the proven, experienced building execution methods perfected by SchwörerHaus. This association has allowed the combination of design and execution quality to create an exemplary product."

Planning with variants

The design of the SCHÖNER WOHNEN HOUSE envisages variants with pitched roofs in a variety of designs.

Home and heating technology

Alongside the architectural and design highlights, this house concept is also linked with the critical future areas of energy, mobility and communication. The SCHÖNER WOHNEN house achieves a KfW Efficient House 55 rating.

The SCHÖNER WOHNEN house produces 4,600 kWh of solar electricity a year compared to the 4,200 kWh calculated as the requirement in terms of energy to supply heating, hot water and other house needs. This leaves a surplus of 400 kWh, which is sufficient, for example, to power an electric bike for 14,800 km.

Dena seal of quality

The SCHÖNER WOHNEN house has been awarded the dena Efficient House 55 seal of approval due to its verifiably low energy requirement.

Fresh air heating system

The low energy requirement is covered by the Schwörer heating system, that comprises a controlled ventilation system with heat recovery combined with an air to air heat pump. On particularly cold days, the living areas can also be heated with ceramic heating elements, known as PTC elements.

Photovoltaic system

Due to the solar power system, which can be installed on the roof or integrated in the facade, the house generates more power than it uses.


The surplus energy can be put to intelligent and efficient use to run your own electric scooter or electric bike. More information on the electric scooter.


The house concept is completed by "HomeOne", a convenient, modern "Smart Home" system developed by SchwörerHaus in conjunction with Microsoft Deutschland and High-Def Technology. With the aid of a central touch panel, users can control every area of the home; for instance lighting, security or entertainment functions as well as the photovoltaic system and charging of the electric scooter, from a central point.
