In designing Alnatura Arbeitswelt – Alnatura Working Environment – the architects haas cook zemmrich STUDIO2050 have built a true masterpiece in the city of Darmstadt in south-western Germany. The 13,500-square-metre office building has been designed according to holistic and sustainable principles, which have earned it the highest certification – platinum – in the DGNB system.
To be platinum-certified, a building must score at least 80 per cent of the possible points within the DGNB criteria.
The workplace for approx. 420 employees, Alnatura Arbeitswelt impresses with its simple and natural aesthetics. The office building meets the highest requirements within ecology, economy, sociocultural and functional aspects, technology, processes and location. Christine Lemaitre, CEO of DGNB, says:
“Certification by DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) is based on Alnatura’s creation of a future-oriented, high-quality building with this new working environment. Its focus is equally on the environment and people as well as on long-term economic efficiency.”
“The platinum-certified project is a shining example within sustainable building, and was therefore also in focus during the opening of the World Green Building Week 2019 in September. As organiser of the campaign in Germany, DGNB hosted the opening event in Stuttgart – in partnership with Troldtekt.”
