The aim is to combine both aspects, with commitment and quality putting added value in the planning process.“ Hans-Joachim Ewert, Senior Architect, Stäwog REFERENCE: NEUELANDSTRASSE, BREMERHAVEN The impressive renovation of an austere 1950s residential complex received the renowned German Construction Award and the Bremen Housing Prize in 2018. Städtische Wohnungsgesellschaft Bremerhaven (Stäwog - Municipal Housing Association) modernised the residential complex to be barrier-free, age-appropriate and energy-efficient. What‘s more, the rearrangement of entrance areas together with the creation of an inner courtyard and passageways has created new scope for residents to interact. That is really sustainable!
