The Nature- and Forestry Administration building in Diekirch is a pilot project and as well a showcase for positive-energy-balanced construction type, producing more energy than required. Furthermore is it labelled by the DGNB with the highest distinction “platinum”. The project is conceived at the western entrance of Diekirch, bordered with two important landscape-axes, the avenue in the north and the river with its promenade in the south. To comply with the desire to use exclusively certified wood, the construction- respectively the structure concept was designed by two three-level volumes built of timber. These two parts, arranged north- and south, are connected with a central concrete core. The architectural integrated photovoltaic-systems in the south-façade and on the roofs ensure the energy needed and the power-surplus.
